Ah, get a load of these young people. Always trying to come up with new and ever more idiotic ways to amuse themselves. Take this latest, Condom Challenge, in which teens pop a water-filled condom over each other's heads then burst into laughter as it explodes and suctions their faces. Think Ice Bucket challenge without the brain cells or the charity slant.
All it took was a pair of bored guys and a video that was retweeted more than 9,000 times to launch the latest online fad, which comes complete with its own 'official' Twitter account. Because Twitter is where the twits hang.
It goes without saying that the Condom Challenge isn't advisable or even remotely safe which, come to think of it, is a prerequisite when it comes to teen fun. And the Condom Challenge is only marginally better than its 2013 predecessor, which I'm told involved snorting a condom up your nose...
In my day we were happy to drive around aimlessly or buy Slurpies from 7-Eleven. But then again, we didn't have the Internet.
Kids in Japan do even weirder things for kicks, so I must conclude they must be truly bored over there.
All I could think watching these videos was that these kids don't yet know the value of a dollar. Have you been to the local drugstore lately? Condoms don't come cheap, folks, and really they could be put to much, much better use.
