Double dog dare 超级挑战
    2019-12-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A: Why did you take yesterday off?

B: I had to lie in bed to recover. On Saturday, I took on a double dog dare from my brother and turned my 5-km run into a full marathon.

A: I wouldn’t let anyone to double dog dare me to do a thing like that.

Note: A double dog dare is a challenge of epic proportions. The term is listed in the book “The Child and Childhood in Folk-Thought” (1896) by Alexander F Chamberlain. Primarily used in the South and Midwest regions of the United States, the term double dog dare enjoyed a resurgence of popularity due to the 1983 movie “A Christmas Story.” In the movie, set in 1940, one child double dog dares another to touch a frozen flagpole with his tongue. The saying is used either as a noun or a verb.
