Ready for a new bout of stupidity? It's the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge. Kylie is one of the Kardashian clan. She recently had plastic surgery to make her lips look fuller. Now everybody thinks she has great looking lips. Whatever.
The problem is that teenagers are trying to emulate the look. How? By sucking the air out of shot glasses. I learned about this when my teenage daughter attempted it. She showed up, with her lips looking noticeably puffy.
"What did you do?" I asked.
"The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge," she said.
"You suck air out of shot glass and keep your lips there for five minutes."
"Are you serious?" I couldn't believe it. "You know that's not very smart," I said. "You can damage your lips. And what happens if the shot glass breaks?"
I don't think many kids have even given this a thought. They just want puffy lips. Needless to say, my daughter will not be doing the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge again.
If you want to learn about this insanity, and the damage it can cause, there's an article from the Washington Post. You can read it here.
