The Tide Pod Challenge

Have you heard of the “Tide Pod Challenge”? Apparently teens (and older who should just know better) are doing an online challenge. Take one of those melting plastic pods full of Tide laundry soap, put it in your mouth, bite down and chew.


I didn’t get Planking, so I sure the heck don’t understand this.  Is this real? Yep. Teens are really doing this.  Did the Marines tell their troops to stop doing it? No. The memo telling them to stop eating Tide was part of a satire site. Jarheads are free to chow down at their leisure.

Now, to me this is a problem that takes care of itself. I only told you this so I could share the joy my friend in Canada sent. Because she’s a disturbed person.
