Did anyone “triple-dog dare” him to stick his tongue on an icy wrought- iron fence? No one knows for sure — and no one’s talking — but an unnamed little Butte boy who dared to touch his tongue on a fence Thursday may never speak of it again. The predicament evoked shades of the tongue-stuck-on-a-pole scene from “A Christmas Story,” the much-beloved, kick-in-the-pants retro holiday movie from 1983 that reminds us of real-life kid shenanigans that remain slapstick funny. A Kennedy Elementary School boy found himself in the same jam Thursday; an adult neighbor rescued him from the tight spot/Renata Birkenbuel, Montana Standard. More here.
Question: Have you ever done something stupid, on a dare?
