In my day we didn't have pods. We had to snort our detergent!

Was that wrong? Should I not have posted that?

I fell creepy even touching those things. That's why you have to swallow them whole.

Some hotshot.

Seriously though, if I weren't a humanist, I'd consider this a self-correcting problem. As it is, I am tempted to have these people placed on psych holds if only to knock some farking sense into their soapy heads.

We 1% ers look down on you poors of intelligence and snicker.

Never, ever, ever do anything the Internet challenges you to do. I tried this one and while I kept it in I very nearly got lost bridging together the past, present and future into a single vision in which all possibilities were clear to me and the blue tinge stayed in my eyes for weeks. Big mistake.

Eating Tide pods is children's equivalent of when adults vote for Trump.

I love that pic.

First off, f*ck P&G for letting this get to store shelves in the first place.

While I am no supporter of "Nanny State"-style protection of people from their own stupidity, this one could use a little assist Maybe a "NOT FOOD! HOW F*CKING STUPID ARE YOU?" label on each pod, with Mr. Yuck on the flipside (google it, kids).

/ pretty sure the class action suits will sort this one out soon enough

Comments like this are why I love Fark.

Why would you want to stop people from doing that?
It is good for the gene pool.

For the record, I have never felt the slightest inclination to eat a tide pod.

Ha! This took me back to my childhood when my father was trying to siphon gasoline from one car to put in another and got a huge mouthfull of it. Then he kept trying to kiss me. I was probably no more than six and I can still remember. He thought it was hilarious. My mum was less amused.

I've taste tested the pods, as part of a premarket consumer focus group.

Gentle notes of spring and pine followed by OH GOD OH GOD IT BURNS MISTAKES WERE MADE and finishes with a clean aftertaste.

I don't like being told what or what not to do. All out of Tide Pods, what about Gain Flings?

I'm sure the plan of correction will be to make all detergent smell like shiat.

So, passive eugenics?
 
2018-01-20 08:28:44 AM  
Are they actually swallowing.  I'm not going to do the research

I remember the toddlers who did and the companies were going to put a foul tasting coating on the plastic.

I could see a lick the plastic challenge and while very stupid won't be harmful.

Consuming laundry detergent.
Crossing  railroad tracks when there is an oncoming train.

Aren't these things you learn not to do in kindergarten?

I have a strange feeling that pulling fire alarms is going to be next.

Cleans up, removes the stains and brightens the DNA like no other brand's pods.

Roman candle challenge would be rather entertaining.

"The pods are in plastic wrapping, which puts them under some pressure, so when you chew on them they will explode in the mouth and coat the mucous membranes inside,"

Or in Marketing phraseology: Love that Squirt

If you know anything about how soap works, you wouldn't put it in your body. I don't know the horrors that might result, but I know enough to know it won't be good for you.

/Generally, when the flavor of something makes it difficult to eat, it's because it's toxic.

then there's the scene in Next Movie where Chong tricks Cheech into snorting laundry soap and drinking urine.
