First Place For All Time Stupidest Craze Goes To: Neknomination

So here goes:

Neknomination is an online drinking game. The aim of the game is to down a pint of alcohol and then nominate someone else to do the same, giving them a window of 24 hours to do so. Most people who take part make a video of themselves carrying it out, and post it on social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter.

The concept of the game has been described as: "Neck your drink. Nominate another. Don't break the chain, don't be a d***. The social drinking game for social media! #neknominate..." 

The Neknominate craze is thought to have originated in Perth, Australia, but thanks to social media it has since gone global.
The hashtag 'neknominate' started trending in the UK in January 2013 and has since been growing in popularity around the world.

One popular video shows a bare-chested man emptying a bottle of beer down the toilet before two friends lower him head-first into the porcelain bowl to lap it up.

Considering how stupid young Nigerians can be sometimes and how much we crave validation that we'd do anything to get it, I hope this doesn't become a trend in this part of the world. Just imagine drinking bear from a hostel toilet in one of our tertiary institutions.

Ok bye :)
