HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) – In a scene straight out of the movie “A Christmas Story,” a 10-year-old Indiana boy got his tongue stuck to a metal light pole.

Hammond police say the unidentified fourth-grader was able to tell them that a friend dared him to lick the pole Wednesday night. Temperatures in the Chicago suburb were around 10 degrees at the time.

The 1983 movie is set in a fictional city based on Hammond, the hometown of author Jean Shepherd.
