Good Day World!
After checking out the latest fad today on social media a funny movie came to mind; A Christmas Story.
There's a particular scene in the movie where one of the characters, Flick, accepts a "triple dog dare" from another character, Schwartz, to stick his tongue onto the school flagpole.
His tongue freezes onto the pole, requiring assistance from the police and fire department to free him.
Demonstrating that stupidity is alive and well in the 21st century is the latest viral fad #IceCreamChallenge.
One of the most popular responses to this idiotic challenge was when a young women walked into a grocery story, opened up a half gallon of ice cream...and licked it! Then she put it back.
So, if these licking idiots really want a challenge they should skip the ice cream licking and move on to licking other surfaces like metal flagpoles or signs.
Blocks of dry ice could be the ultimate licking challenge. A GoFundMe account could be established for the winner (the first one to rip his/hers tongue off the dry ice) to pay for the medical bills and future mental bills.
Since the licking challenge came out, there have been numerous "random lickings" ranging from tongue suppressors in a dentist's office, to other food items.
Who can forget the great "Cinnamon Challenge" where morons attempted to swallow cinnamon without puking?
Perhaps one of the stupidest challenge I've heard of yet was the "Fire Challenge" where kids set themselves on fire after dousing their body with rubbing alcohol.
As long as there is social media platforms to showcase clowns without any sense, we can expect new challenges to come and go... with each trying to out-stupid the next one.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
