The Internet has literally made a lot of information available at your fingertips.
Just a little over two decades earlier, people had to go to the library or keep stacks of encyclopedias at home if they wanted access to a wide range of information.
But for all the benefits that the Internet has brought us, it has also spawned some rather unsavory practices, particularly the “viral challenge.” As the term implies, it involves some sort of exercise or challenge that spreads very quickly and a lot of people are convinced to do just for the likes and shares.
Some of them are downright hilarious while others can be embarrassing or even dangerous. But this latest one has taken it to another level because it’s just downright gross.
A new trend that’s making its rounds now via Tik Tok is the #cerealchallenge. Yes, it involves eating cereal but it’s how you eat it that will either get you excited or ready to reach for the barf bag.
The challenge involves one person lying on their back and having milk and cereal poured into their mouth as the “bowl.” The other part of the challenge involves one other person eating the cereal out of the person’s mouth, assuming their bowl got that far without spewing it all out in the first place.
You can probably imagine the consequences of the challenge not going according to plan which is probably why some pairs are setting up their rooms as if they took some lessons from Dexter or Hannibal Lecter with all those plastic sheets covering the floor.
But the thing is, the challenge is going viral which means a lot of people are not as squeamish as you might initially assume, all for the sake of Internet fame or infamy. Besides, there are enough pairs who manage to get the challenge right that others may be willing to look beyond saliva-mixed milk and cereal and tackle the challenge themselves.
Suffice it to say, make sure that your partner doesn’t have any contagious disease or some sort of oral problem that might end up making its home in YOUR mouth should you decide that the challenge is worthwhile.
