It's a case of life imitating art for one unlucky student in Easthampton, Mass.

A anonymous middle schooler, presumably made stir-crazy by the weather, got his or her tongue stuck to a metal pole after replicating a scene from A Christmas Story Wednesday morning, reports local Boston news station WCVB. The student's age and gender have not been released, but he or she was not injured during the incident.

Firefighters were called to White Brook Middle School to help free the pupil, which they did by pouring warm water on the tongue.

In an iconic scene from the 1983 movie, a boy named Flick is dared to lick a pole, and finds himself similarly stuck. Check out the clip below:
