    No, it was the dreaded triple-dog dare that did him in.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't pouring lukewarm water on the tongue remove it from the metal pole?

    Now I know that some of you put Flick up to this, but he has refused to say who. But those who did it know their blame, and I'm sure that the guilt you must feel would be far worse than any punishment you might receive.

    "The 1983 movie is set in a fictional city based on Hammond, Ind., the hometown of author Gene Shepherd."

    Gene Shepherd??? Gene???

    It's "Jean"

    Did someone kill all the copy editors?

    No. All the copy editors have been outsourced.

    So this happened in the exact same town where Shepherd was writing about? Jesus, maybe pole licking is just some bizarre wintertime sport in Hammond.

    Copy editors, what about fact checkers? Wasn't Flick triple dog dared?
     
  10. Yep.
    Schwartz committed a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the double-dog dare and going right for the throat with the triple-dog dare!

    So what?

    Does it mean they get a pass?

    That's not just a small mistake. That's bloody embarrassing.
