With the advent of social media, and the countless drones of mindless participants crying out for acceptance and love from those they will never become formally acquainted with, came a new trend. The trend of mindless and haphazard challenges emerged as an acceptable form of recognition and inclusive herding of those that find a dire need to be noticed.
There has been the “Boiling Water Challenge,” the “Fire Challenge,” the “Fainting Challenge” and even the “Kylie Jenner Challenge,” which the latter was even named after a spoiled drab and mindless individual whom has a desire and yearning for acceptance and an unobtainable conclusion as to why the teenage girls idolize her. The chosen merriment of Darwin’s’ theory, prevailing throughout the world of digital friendship and aiding in the eradication of the weak is the mind-numbing “Tide Pod Challenge.” The perfect challenge, the final destination for those few that have obtained the intelligence quotient of the national speed limit and the desire to be included in the exclusive club of those that prove Darwin’s concept of evolution is the correct path. Apace the details, these sedimentary heedless halfwits take a small soft plastic container filled with a suicidal toxic mixture of cleaning chemicals in their mouths and procede to bite and break open the pod recklessly spewing the toxic mixture into their mouths.

Althought the crooks in the neck are sore and pity falls on these individuals, a standing ovation must be given for the feeble mindedness leading the nomiations for the Darwin Awards.
