An Indiana boy is recovering after getting his tongue stuck to a metal light pole Wednesday night. But that's not the strange part of the story.

The weirdest part is where it happened.

The 10 year-old boy is from Hammond, the city that the movie "A Christmas Story" was based on.

The unidentified fourth-grader told police his friend dared him to lick a metal pole.

WIth temperatures around single digits Wednesday night, the boy's tongue instantly stuck to the pole.

When emergency crews arrived, the boy was able to pull his tongue off the pole.
