I've come up with a new viral phenomenon called the Birthday Cake Challenge where you post a picture or video of you eating an entire birthday cake by yourself.

Okay, I really just want a reason to eat an entire birthday cake.

Back in the day we called that a wet T-shirt contest.

In Canuckistan it's called "showering".

See you next Tuesday?

[t]hese ice bucket challenges and similar social media-powered stunts also are raising awareness and money for causes such as Lou Gehrig's disease, breast cancer and a camp for kids who have lost their fathers to war.

One could murder a great many people under the claim of "raising awareness."

You know it's really not that new.

Does one really need a reason to eat an entire birthday cake by themselves?

So, if I complete the challenge i DON'T donate any money?

Sounds like this plan still need a little work.
 
2014-08-11 03:04:50 PM
It's actually been going on for six months at least already, and while I'm not a fan of these things generally, I'm not going to deride it since it's for charity.    And people who normally wouldn't donate to charity are, so good on them.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone have pics of Martha Stewart's dousing? And more importantly, do her nipples become turgid due to increased blood flow and possible arousal?
 
2014-08-11 03:06:49 PM
Oh, ice! Now that makes sense. When I used a bucket of acid, I received extremely strange reactions.

Everyone I know donates $10 if they do it, $100 if they don't. I'm assuming of course, that they are donating the money.

In any case, the ALS people are reporting a HUGE rise in donations, so it has worked somewhat.

I suppose if you thought the Internet was only for new, serious things you'd complain about this.

/anyone taking bets on how long it takes before that gets pulled?

Better than the "Boiling Water Challenge"

And yes, it's a real thing.
 
2014-08-11 03:19:41 PM
There will be a new one in a couple of months.  I'm guessing "Stick a zucchini up your ass for colon cancer awareness"... but it could be anything.

Get Mauled by a pitbull for Postal Workers Danger Awareness should be the next fad.

Think of the poor postal service employees.  Get mauled today to save a life.

I like to keep my ice dousing on the small scale. Just a cute to her nipple.

I'm doing the planking to raise awareness for gout challenge.
 
2014-08-11 03:42:59 PM
Best done while planking
 
2014-08-11 03:45:23 PM
This has none shock-and-awe capacity akin to hurling large vessels of boiling water headlong into sub-zero winds. NONE OF IT.

No thank you sir. GOOD DAY TO YOU.

Ethel Kennedy just nominated Barrack Obama, so, you know, prepare for this to spread all over Kinya during his vacation while his cuzzins colect frodlant EBT cards as 'murican embessy personal are diing from turists

A couple of the local news girls did this.  I was hoping for pokies but apparently they prepared because the high beams did not come on as far as I could see.

It's an honor just to be nominated

My parents did that before it was cool. They owned a small restaurant in the mid 70s and one afternoon there was an ice cube fight between the staff and the regulars (truckers and policemen).
Also happened at a bar/restaurant I frequented in the 90s.

See, here's the problem. I've only recently seen this on my own news feed and at no point were any of those things mentioned.

MNope, not really. Thanks for poking my day with utterly worthless bullshiat ..

This thread is full of win. I can't come up with anything as good as you've done, fellow Farkers.

Martha Stewart has been doused. So has Matt Lauer. And pro golfer Greg Norman.

The big three?!! I'm in!

You need to work on

1) spelling
2) writing
3) thinking skills
4) paying attention to what the thread is about.
