At some point, you’ve probably cracked an icicle off the gutters and eaten it like a cold, flavorless popsicle. But here’s something you DIDN’T know. That popsicle actually DOES have a flavor… and the flavor is bird poop.
Katie Nickolaou is a meteorologist in Sioux City, Iowa. And she’s going viral with a TikTok video she posted that explains why icicles are filled with bird poop.
Don’t eat icicles! Please respect the fact that I edited out the original woman in the video (I have her permission) #IciclePoop
Quote, “When icicles form, it’s from water that melts off your roof and runs down the side of a building. You know what else is on your roof? Bird poop. A lot of it.” That’s not to say you’ll get sick from licking the bird poop in an icicle… but really, is that something you WANT to lick?
