  • Social media — where people go to be mad online, or record themselves doing the dumbest sh*t possible. Now, doctors are warning that the Tide Pod Challenge could cause serious damage — even death.

    The Tide Pod Challenge has been circulating on social media for a couple of years now. The challenge is to take the little laundry detergent pods and eat them. So, of course, the Internet loves it.

    Tide Pod memes, however, have been going up and down in popularity since 2015. The Onion joked about them with the headline — “So Help Me God, I’m Going To Eat One Of Those Multicolored Detergent Pods.” And last year, CollegeHumor made a sketch about it.
