We have joked about this for years. Heck, just last week I was right here writing about it in the Fives. It is perhaps the single greatest urban legend in history. What happens when you stick your tongue to a pole in Winter. We all know someone who says they have seen it. It is the ‘friend of a friend’ story.
No one will touch it, though. Where is snopes on this? How about Mythbusters? Cowards, all of them! Will anyone take ball and run with this? Thankfully, two brave… and mildly retarded, school boys took one for the team. Yup. They stuck their tongues to the frozen flagpole. Yup, their toungues got stuck. Yup, their tongues are still bleeding.
Well, if Gavin Dempsey stuck his toungue to the flagpole, would you?
I would kill or die for a photo of this event, but we’ll just have to use our imagination.
