Meteorologist Reminds Us Why We Shouldn’t Eat Icicles

Meteorologist Katie Nickolaou of Sioux City, IA took to her Twitter to respond to some TikTok videos featuring folks doing exactly that, eating icicles.

Nickolaou reminds us that the water that refreezes to form those lovely icicles will more than likely contain a TON of avian fecal matter…..aka, bird poop.
