Come on, can we please STOP telling these teens to not do these stupid and dangerous challenges?  Our Great and Mighty Lord Darwin needs their souls!

Sure, we can all laugh, but some kid's going to end up with Downy's Syndrome.

Due to the wonders of the internet--I have it on good authority that people under 18 are:

drinking less alcohol
smoking less weed
smoking less tobacco
having less sex

So, they're stealing grandma's pain medication and eating laundry products....
at least they're not sneaking Marlboros and drinking Bud Light.

like 30 years ago i knew this person, he left an eighth of some KB in a pair of jeans. his mom came into his room and got the jeans to wash them. so after washing and drying the sack in the pocket of silver tab levi jeans the kid figures out the weed was in the jeans and had been washed. the kid was furious. he thought maybe the weed wasn't affected by the detergent, so he tried smoking it. it was ruined and was unsmokable. don't try ingesting laundry detergent. that stuff made me sick.

Pods suck.

Not for the safety issue. That's just a symptom of stupidity- either little kids (who are supposed to be dumb) eating everything or teenagers (who are notorious for being moronic) doing stuff like this.

I dislike them because they just don't really work well. They stain clothes. When I tried them, I ruined several articles of clothing with weird stains that just wouldn't ever come out. I finally nailed it down to the plastic not dissolving right and getting stuck into the clothing. I quit using the pods and never once had another issue like that. Screw it. Putting liquid or powder in there isn't that hard at all.

There's a BIG difference between OxyClean and Oxycontin.
Don't ingest too much of the OxyClean or they won't have enough to get your burial clothes nice and clean.

Argh. It's a JOKE. This is Jenkum all over again. No, adults, teenagers are not really eating Tide Pods. They're using them as part of a silly meme. What you see in the memes and videos is not reality. No normal teenagers are actually eating laundry detergent.

Of course you don't eat laundry detergent; your lower intestine is dry-clean only. Dumbasses.

I knew the guy who did the Jenkem thing, and yes he was dumb enough to do it , and yes he did do it. shiathuffer we called him. There were many lulz and sciences made from Pickwick's research. And then someone from the thread sent it to a sheriff's office and then many lulz were had and an Internet star was born.

It was absolutely glorious.

I'm glad my kids have enough sense to only eat stuff from the kitchen.  Like dishwasher pods

Wow, who knew ingesting laundry detergent would be bad for you?

Anyone with an IQ north of 20. There's warning labels on the box and Tide has run a series of ads whose sole purpose is to warn consumers of the dangers of eating the them, so at this point either the "Tide Pod Challenge" is fake or there's a whole lot of idiots out there who deserve what they get for being stupid.

It's the new jenkem. A lot of adults-- especially those in the "news" business-- are befuddled by tongue-in-cheek memes and videos.

I bet if the journalists we have now were around in the 70s or 80s, Steve Martin would have had them all believing in Cat Juggling being a popular pastime in Mexico.

Tide actually ran ads warning people not to eat them? What's the timeline? Maybe the whole point of the "Tide Pod Challenge" meme was to mock those ads. Certainly they'd fuel the fire. "Thanks, Procter and Gamble," says the Internet sarcastically, "we really needed you to run a bunch of ads telling us we shouldn't eat farking laundry detergent."

I work in a children's ER. Have seen multiple kids (toddler/preschool age) come in who ingested (usually bit into) Tide Pods. Can make them seriously sick. Burn the esophagus, crap like that.

So Tide makes a commercial to cover their ass.

And everybody makes a joke of it, because duh don't eat them.

And teenagers now pretend to rebel again the warning... lets hope they pretend at least.

And the target audience for the commercial (parents) fails to learn to lock up and keep Tide pods away from kids.

...This may be the reason that whenever I hear the words "whatever challenge", the hair on the back of my neck stands up and I want to tase the person/s saying it until they are a twitching, soiling-themselves heap on the floor.  It's no more than a handy excuse to do something remarkably stupid, and for some reason the people doing it are always amazed when it all goes horribly wrong.

I've never used laundry pods, but I have used dishwasher pods...geez, those things are strong!  Getting a good whiff of the open container is enough to singe a few nose hairs.  I'm guessing laundry pods have a milder scent if small children (and larger dumb ones) are happily putting them in their mouths?

The author of the article finds a joke subreddit about making Tide pods into snacks meals and we get a styoooopid, panicky article over it. Enjoy that ulcer, morans.
