Kids Are Literally Eating Laundry Detergent Pods For A Dare….

I am just extremely baffled at this. How dumb can kids be to actually EAT laundry detergent pods?

For those that are not aware, the new trend millennial’s have created that’s spread like wildfire is videotaping themselves eating laundry detergent pods in various ways. There have been kids slicing them up, sprinkling them on pizza, and just simply eating them whole.

Now before I get into this, I do have to say that these pods are one of the best inventions to come out, especially for college students. When all of my friends were lugging industrial sized bottles of detergent to the laundry room at school, I was just bringing a SINGLE POD and tossing into the machine. THAT’S IT!

But now, kids are seeing these “little pods of convenience” as something to play with, to eat. These kids are RISKING THEIR LIVES to try and gain popularity for a bunch of strangers on the internet.

But my question is, how have we come to this? Where in the evolution of society did our youth gain the idea that eating detergent is a good idea?

I mean geez, it’s like we are revisiting the damn fire challenge from a while back. Do you remember the fire challenge? It was where idiots stood in the shower or outside their house, DOUSED THEMSELVES IN GASOLINE, and then lit themselves on fire.

This was an actual challenge just like the pod challenge, and people were seriously hurt JUST LIKE THE POD CHALLENGE!

Now granted, for those that know me, I am in the age range of being a “millennial.” I’m a little sad to admit it, but it’s true. But the difference between myself and these individuals is that I have the mental fortitude to realize that LAUNDRY DETERGENT CAN KILL YOU!

So if this trend continues, expect these products to be pulled off the shelves within the year. Because major companies and products cannot last with negative press surrounding them like that.


But I want to hear from you! What are your thoughts on the pod challenge? Let me know in the comments below, or on one of Weekly Sports World’s various social media pages.
