In Spencer’s case, there was no dare. He has seen the movie, but he didn’t think his tongue would actually stick, he said. “I was just tempted to. I’ve seen the movie ‘A Christmas Story,’ which kind of inspired me.”
He approached the pole and asked Cole if he thought it would actually stick. Then Spencer went ahead and did it. His tongue froze to the pole immediately. Surprise, then fear kicked in.
“Cole thought at first I was messing with him,” Spencer said. “I told him no, it’s really stuck, but he at first couldn’t understand what I was saying.”
Cole, as any friend would, ran to the nearest house and asked a woman if she had hot water for his friend's tongue.
“She said she didn’t have any hot water, and I said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to call an ambulance then,’” Cole said.
Spencer was able to pull his tongue off by the time Sandwich emergency medical service crews arrived. He estimated he was stuck for about seven minutes. More HERE
