Silly Kid Spends 10 Minutes On Tiptoes With Tongue Stuck To Pole
"An 8-year-old boy in Woodward, Okla., was challenged to a dare and ended up re-creating a classic scene in the movie A Christmas Story. Before firefighters freed him, the boy spent 10 minutes on tiptoes with his tongue stuck to a stop sign pole."
When a "friend" or a family member dares you to do something, they are seeking to make themselves look good by making you look like a fool.
The 8-year-old boy was challenged to the dare by his older brother. An important rule to live by for little kids: Never accept a dare by your older brother!
I bet those ten minutes felt like ten hours for that silly kid, let`s hope he has learned his lesson.
I`m glad the child`s name wasn`t published by the press, he has suffered enough humiliation to last a lifetime.
