Just when we think the stupidity of eating Tide Pods is over…teens these days have found another disgusting challenge to post on social media. What’s next? The Jumping off a cliff challenge? Natural selection may take care of that for us.
The newest dumb trend that follows the Kylie Jenner lip challenge and the Tide Pod challenge is…drumroll please…
The Condom Challenge!
It’s where teens are posting videos online of them snorting a condom, and then pulling it out their mouth, you know because their absent parents didn’t teach them how to actually use one. I’d like to think if I was younger I wouldn’t be doing these stupid challenge and oh wait, we would be fine everyone! I mean take a look at one of them…
The guy’s channel is named Lucky but…I don’t think there’s much luck in his future.
Man I feel really old for writing this article, like why ARE THESE DANG KIDS DOING THIS?! It’s not funny at all…
It seems these days you can come up with anything that’s relatively stupid and dangerous and it would be a viral internet challenge. The problem is with most these challenges, they can lead to actual death.
An associate professor at John Hopkins, Bruce Lee (yes I know), wrote this in a recent Forbes article:
“When is using a condom a bad idea? When you are trying to snort it up your nose and pull it out through your mouth. If you ask, ‘why would anyone ever do that’, then you obviously haven’t heard of the ‘Condom Snorting Challenge’.
The condom could easily get stuck in your nose or your throat, blocking your breathing or causing you to choke.
Even if you manage to successfully pull the condom out through your mouth, inhaling a condom up your nose would be very uncomfortable and potentially quite painful. Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?”
So if you are into dying…this is the challenge for you!
There is one positive thing from this dumb challenge though, and that’s all the funny news coverage. I mean if you asked these anchors about what they would be covering in 2018 when they were going to college, I don’t think they would have said covering teens snorting condoms.
Let’s take a look!
The apocalypse is here.

“Can’t really believe this is news!” Yeah I agree!
“Yeah don’t do that.” I really hope you laughed out loud after watching that.
I could keep showing you all these clips but they are all the same. A bunch of 40 and 50 somethings, amazed that they have to say condom and challenge in the same breath.
