Trendy Tide Pod Challenge Puts Teens in Danger

Trendy Tide Pod Challenge Puts Teens in Danger:  A new, potentially lethal viral trend called the “Tide Pod Challenge” has sweeping through social media, which has teens filming themselves swallowing the Tide laundry detergent pods and then challenging others to do the same. 

Wow, what a perfect tagline for the Trump era - "Let them eat soap!”  On a positive note, at least you can’t say these teens have a dirty mouth.  Personally, I’ve always assumed that anything circulating around the internet that ends in the word "challenge" is probably best suited for the “mentally challenged.”  Of course, to be completely fair, stupidity isn’t anything new, but I do have to admit - swallowing laundry detergent is certainly something that implies a very special kind of stupid. 

Meanwhile, some are saying we need to explain to these teens just how dangerous this trend really is.  Perhaps, but I can’t help thinking that anyone who actually requires an explanation as to why eating laundry detergent might be dangerous - is probably too stupid to understand the explanation anyway.  Now, you can try explaining anything you want, but why not just tell them these laundry packets are chock-full of healthy nutrition - they’ll avoid them like the plague.
