If the Ice Challenge hasn’t yet hit its peak, it’s only a matter of time before we run out of people who haven’t doused themselves in ice water, paid money to get out of doing it or made a status update about how stupid the trend is, despite the millions of dollars that it’s raised.

Unlike previous fads, like selfies and “Frozen,” its impossible to argue that the Ice Bucket Challenge hasn’t has a positive impact on the world, but the reality is that it’s only a matter of time before it gets beaten into the ground like every other trend before it.

Part of that positive impact has to do with the funds and awareness raised for ALS, but it’s also provided the world with an incredible amount of entertainment thanks to people who tried to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, but somehow managed to screw it up.

I’ve previously posted a few of these in video form, but they’re infinitely more enjoyable on repeat for eternity. The Ice Bucket Challenge might be getting a little old, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get tired of watching people screw it up.

The cap was on the Jameson, but that other part wasn’t staged

Bathroom Graffiti Quotes Make Motivational Pictures So Much Less Inspirational (Photos)

In the past few years, the Internet has been flooded with something I like to call “Tumblr pictures”: photographs filtered to look older than they actually are plastered with pseudo-inspirational messages for people who enjoy reblogging quotes from authors they’ve never heard of to make other people think they’re cultured. I’m not disparaging anyone who […]

Why Women Need To Start Asking Men Out…Because Men Have No Balls

Ladies, it’s been said before, but I’ll say it again: They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. There’s no door-holding, no hand-holding and definitely no free drinks. There’s no taking off hats or courting through invitations. There are no smooth moves, no jackets to dinner. There are no flowers, no tables by candlelight. […]
