Boy Rescued After Tongue Gets Stuck On Metal Pole

RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:

(Soundbite of movie "A Christmas Story")

SCOTT SCHWARTZ: (as "Flick") Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid pole? That's dumb!

MONTAGNE: (as "Schwartz") That's 'cause you know it'll stick.

SCHWARTZ: You're full of it!

ROBB: Oh yeah?

SCHWARTZ: Yeah!

ROBB: Well, I double-dog-dare you!

MONTAGNE: Before firefighters freed him, the Oklahoma boy spent 10 minutes on tiptoes with his tongue stuck to a stop sign. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
