Girl Gets Tongue Stuck on Flag Pole in Scary Incident Ripped From ‘A Christmas Story’ [VIDEO]

Life has imitated art for one girl.

Twelve-year-old Maddie Gilmartin, of East Kingston, New Hampshire, got her tongue stuck on a flag pole in her yard last week while helping her father after a snowstorm.

Cue the comparison to ‘A Christmas Story.’

Maddie says she came up with the idea for the stunt:

It just kind of popped into my head, ‘Hey what would happen if I stuck my tongue to a flag pole?’ At the moment, I was like, it will come right off.”

Big mistake. Her tongue quickly got stuck and remained like that for 15 minutes until her parents used warm water. She was taken to the hospital and is doing okay, although she experienced swelling and soreness.
