EAST KINGSTON, NH – A New Hampshire girl learned the hard way that touching your tongue to a flag pole is a bad idea.

Maddie Gilmartin had the bright idea to stick her tongue to a flag pole. She thought it would come right off but it didn’t.

After being stuck for 15 minutes she was finally taken to the ER. Fortunately, she’s going to be ok.

And Maddie says she’s never seen “A Christmas Story” but she’s definitely learned her lesson.
