well, you knew this was coming.

when does the 'jump off a very high bridge' challenge begin?

Reminds me the time when I was working for someone that hijacked the "Live Strong" concept of flexi-bracelets.

That's what our environmental organization needs.  Millions of nonbiogdegradable petro-chemical sea creature choking hazards!  Genius!  Let's just spell out our donation info in huge oil slicks while we're at it!

Get your pies for the great pie fight.

No, I'm pretty sure that the rubble bucket challenge was before this, in all of it's awkward tragedy.

George Takei put this up on his FB page, and nominated Joffrey, Cersei, Walder Frey, Maryn Trant, Tywin Lannister, The Red Woman, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, Ilyn Payn, The Mountain, and The Hound.

The Michael Brown six shot challenge.  Proceeds to fund rubber bullets and humvees for your local PD.
 
2014-09-02 02:49:54 PM  
How about a "donate money to research" challenge?  It's unconventional, I know, but it's so crazy it just might work.
 
2014-09-02 02:52:25 PM  
We have also had Matt Damon's dirty water challenge, and a couple of trash-on-the-head, anti-pollution/anti-littering challenges.

And lest we not forget, the very short-lived, Camel Toe Challenge for Cervical Cancer Awareness.

That pic is funny.

Anyway, can we jsut stick a fork in its butt and call it a turkey?  It's done.  Jumped the shark.  Nuked the fridge.

Now if you want to have a Jessica Alba gargling m-m-m-mouthwash (*whew*) challenge, I can go for that.

Are you ready for the Testicular Cancer Society Bukkake Challenge?

/...well, are you?
 
2014-09-02 02:55:07 PM  
Hadn't heard of that one.

I have seen the "Waterboarding Challenge" to raise awareness and money for combating veteran suicide though.

Good god, what a dumb idea.

I thought the rights to getting creamed in the face were already taken.

Polish roulette challenge... help cure global overpopulation.
 
2014-09-02 02:55:31 PM  
The first? There's the nut challenge, the rubble challenge, there was more already anyway
 
2014-09-02 02:56:48 PM  
I kind of like the Indian Rice Bucket Challenge.  You get a small bucket of rice and give it to the first hungry person you see.  I like the directness of it.  Heck, I'd even be willing to throw in some dried black beans.

Didn't Tony Scott already start that a couple years ago?

I was cloistered, working on a project for two weeks; and then I was on vacation for two weeks. Can someone explain this ice bucket challenge in one or two sentences?
 
2014-09-02 02:59:44 PM  
I'd rather do this than the ice bucket one
 
2014-09-02 03:00:18 PM

Nuke Bomb challenge.

The first clumsy hijacking of the ice bucket challenge

Not sure how it's "hijacking", when the challenge was originally intended to be used for any charity. The ALS cause just leveraged it the most aggressively.

Say no more.

This is a great charity, but there are so many others too. Are we supposed to pick the one we want to give money to the one with the best stupid gimmick?

The charities that really bother me are the ones that advertise on TV. They show starving children or dogs and make you feel like a selfish s**t for not giving.

The worst part is that the people running them receive large pay checks. So much money is wasted that very little goes were it should.  Many are not even real. They take all the money and laugh at the suckers.

What are the colon cancer charities going to fill their buckets with?

We're all friends! Welcome to the Chum Bucket Challenge!

I'd be willing to participate in the "Chug a Beer to Strike out PMS" challenge if it wasn't such a misogynist suggestion.

But hey, it's something I'm sure we ALL suffer from, amiright?

FirstNationalBastard: I think I saw a cream pie challenge video once, starring Annabel Chong.


I once saw a video of her involving a funnel and motor oil.

It ruined the concept of 'porn' for me.

Around here that call that Tuesday.

How about people just donate to charity when they feel like it and are able?

Bloody stool.

The cream-pie challenge? Aw, hells no. I ain't gonna Google that.
 
2014-09-02 03:09:44 PM  
I'm actually surprised it took this long
 
2014-09-02 03:11:23 PM  
This is so calloused toward the millions of people in the world who don't have access to clean whipped cream.
 
2014-09-02 03:14:08 PM  
The entire premise behind the "ice Bucket Challenge" is for people to experience, if even just for a few seconds, the pain and discomfort felt by people with ALS on a daily basis.  It is a type of simulation.  Sadly, it's been lost on the masses who just chuckle away as they get water dumped on them.

So, what exactly does a "pie in the face" have to do with cancer?  Absolutely nothing.  How about they start the "Chemotherapy for an Hour" challenge, then maybe they'll begin to understand.
 
2014-09-02 03:14:10 PM  
Countdown until the first apple pie covered with whipped cream hits...

Yes. Alyssa Milano blames YOU  for all the starving children.

I think she needs to say the word "death" a couple more times for maximum effect.

What are your feelings on tentacle pr0n?

What about the kerosene or moonshine chug challenge?

I preferred Numberphile's "Dice Bucket Challenge."

I propose the Total Fark Challenge. Every time a TFer sees a Liter, they give them a free month*.

*Not redeemable for cash or booze value.


/Probably already been suggested.
