You Tube Stupidity

My kids find all kinds of strange and bizarre things on YouTube. Here are some of the highlights I've seen over the past few years:

The Cinnamon Challenge:
  Brought to you by none other than GloZell, the cinnamon challenge prompted my kids to attempt it themselves.  I quickly put a stop to it, before someone ended up vomiting all over my nice kitchen floor!

The Chubby Bunny Challenge:


Yep.  Brought to you once again, by GloZell.  (What's up with this woman?) My kids didn't even get started on this one.  Those chubby bunnies looked dangerous!  Which brings me to my next video:

Dumb Ways to Die:


I think they missed one on this.  They need to add, "doing the chubby bunny challenge," because shoving too many chubby bunnies in your mouth is definitely a dumb way to die!

  1. Someone else blogged about the Chubby Bunny challenge. That's beyond silly.

  2. My kids love the song Dumb Ways To Die. I must admit, it is catchy. Stuffing a bunch of anything in your mouth? Not smart.

    1. The tune is catchy. Some of the stuff I've seen GloZell do, is just plain insane!

  3. I agree about the Chubby Bunny, still I suppose each to their own as they say.

    1. Survival of the fittest. If people are stupid enough to do that, then they'll face the consequences!

  4. Oh my goodness- the Chubby Bunny!

  5. Everything I try to say must be erased Sherry, as young kids don't have the ability to know if something is a bad idea. I don't understand why some think this is funny. Warped humor?

  7. I remember the Cinnamon challenge craze. There are still so many youtube videos dedicated to that crazyness. Good call on keeping your kids from trying that one.

    1. It's ridiculous how many downright dangerous challenges you can find on You Tube.

  8. Unfortunately, this is a fairly accurate reflection of where we are as a society. I am so disheartened.

    1. My husband and I were just talking about that the other day. In this age of the internet, there are so many things you can learn - like physics, and biology. But instead of looking at educational things that can help one's mind, people view stupidity like this. You're right. It is disheartening.

  9. Ah! We LOVE dumb ways to die. One Youtube video that got me is one where they make diamonds in a microwave. Hah! Stinkin' hilarious.

  10. I remember the Cinnamon challenge ...came home one day and wondered what all those stains on my pavement were! .. I was not pleased.
    Hmmm, that Chubby bunny one, does not look like a good idea at all!

    1. Who comes up with these things, anyway?

    2. Hey Dawna, I tried to comment on your blog, but something's wrong with the CAPTCHA image. I couldn't see the code, and therefore couldn't leave a comment.

  12. Omg, all this is way too bizarre. Thank God you put a stop to some of them.

    1. Kids don't think about how dangerous these things can be. They just think it looks funny.

  13. YouTube was my Y, too, but yours is funnier!

    1. That's just because kids are involved! I saw your post. Well done!

  14. well, when you compare them to the horrid videos of today's pop stars, these actually sound only mildly sick....

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes. Some of those videos from the pop stars are downright pornographic.

  15. I have difficulty swallowing small bites of food. I'll stay away from any stuffing of the mouth.

    Love,

  16. What is wrong with people? Do they have to wait until someone dies to realize they're tempting people to do something dangerous? This happened to some radio station where a women in a water-drinking competition died. So tired of people selfishly using social media for their pitiful 15 minutes of fame...

    1. That's crazy! Fifteen minutes of fame, then you end up buried six feet under!

  17. I can't watch them on this computer but I am familiar with the cinnamon bullnog. So stupid. And a perfect waste of cinnamon.

    1. I agree. Cinnamon should be used for baking!

  18. I remember seeing that "Dumb Ways to Die" vid before! Have never seen the other two till now, but gosh, I can't imagine why anyone would ever want to do those challenges...

    1. Only really crazy people who don't think through the possible consequences.

  19. The cinnamon challenge needs to be taken off

  20. There is something seriously wrong with that chubby bunny woman. And something seriously wrong with me that I watched almost the whole thing.

  21. There are some really stupid Youtubers out there. My kids enjoy a couple guys who are, thankfully, not stupid, but just fun. The Slow-Motion guys, I think they're called. And Rhett & Link are hilarious.

    1. I haven't seen either of those. But I'm glad they are better than GloZell.

  22. These are so silly. I've also seen the Mentos and soda challenge. I don't know why anyone would want to spit and vomit for public viewing.

  23. Some people have a little too much time on their hands by the looks of those videos :)
