Okay, I came back via IE. Firefox for some reason is giving me fits and not showing images...NOW I get it b/c I can actually see the image you've presented. Sorry...

Happy MM!

Gattina said...

That's funny, lol (and short) For the moment I am not participating at MM because I am away too much and so I only do Fun Monday.

Janna said...

I can honestly say that I have never tried to lick a frozen street pole.
Perhaps I should put it on my list of things to do before I turn 40!

Lois Grebowski said...

When growing up I was smart enough not to try that stunt...

Putz said...

how come your manic monday doesn't have any color in it....you counld have a mauve manic monday, of course i don't have anything with the color mauve fi that
's what you are thinking

Jamie said...

I always wanted to see if that happened, but never lived anywhere cold enough when I was a kid.

Good MM idea.

Ah, the stunts kids play!

Putz said...

ha, ha, teach i get to do the teaching, ok, maybe john lennon, but most certainly john denver also....he wrote about the box of war that mark twain refered too, and did a reading on opening , crashing in the lid, spilling all the contents out, and who does it hurt the most, the children i'll tell ya, and what is more it goes on hurting killing and we can't get the lid back on because it is all dented and won't fit...happy mauave monday, hope i didn't depress you and ruin your monday

Debbie said...

Gosh, this one brought back memories...that was always a dare when I was a kid! In Caribou, ME we had to be careful our fingers weren't wet before touching.

Good one!

Who hasn't done something like this? For me it was the elementary school door handle when I got to school to early because of daylight's savings time.
I love the scene in The Christmas Story with Flick & the flagpole.

Chuck said...

Ah yes. It's The Christmas Story - right? That's the right movie...gr8 idea for Mm. I played today too, though it's not that exciting. 4 others have done the same post so far *yikes* I swear I didn't copy! *lovies* (Manic Monday ~ Lick)

After Hours said...

I love it. That should be the punishment for bullies in school.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I've done this more than once when I was a kid and then asked myself why. Have a great MM Teach. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Bond said...

I double dog dare ya to stick your tongue on the pole...

Mo said...

I was wondering if anyone was going to have the Christmas Story lick the pole clip today!

Sometimes you just can't help yourself.

Happy MM!
