People across the internet have been puckering up for the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. And if the concept of the challenge doesn’t make you laugh, the results will.
Instead of drastically enhancing their lips, people (yes, men and women) have accidentally burst blood vessels under the skin and caused extensive bruising.
And while we’d love to talk about how funny that is and how the Internet is just a black hole of comedy, ridiculousness and research, it’s not really what we want people to pull from this.
Instead, we think it’s about time to look at something other than a Kardashian in the news.
We could look at the Boston Marathon, for instance. Yesterday, Maickel Melamed from Venezuela started his run at the event, and finished twenty hours later. Melamed, who has muscular dystrophy, ran through torrential downpours and thunderstorms to complete the course, according to USAToday.
Or, for the Californians or just anyone who likes an old-fashioned car chase, CBS News live-streamed one of them Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles. Where do these people think they’re going to go? Los Angeles traffic is worse than walking behind a slow couple on the way to Chapel.
Or, if we’re really getting into things, how many people knew Footloose is rumored to be based on events in Anson, just 30 minutes from here?
And if anyone hasn’t heard about Lauren Southern and the latest feminist definition, are they really relevant?
In recent news, a bookkeeper for the Nazis is being tried in Germany. But we’ll talk more about that on Friday.
Also, Huffington Post reported that researchers discovered dozens of dinosaur eggs in China. So basically, the Jurassic Park movie is happening for real.
On that note, the Star Wars trailer came out. “Chewy, we’re home,” is all that needs to be said.
All we’re saying is that the Internet has so much more to offer than the Kylie Jenner lip challenge, so let’s start exploring. Don’t settle for the most ridiculous trending tweet. Instead, follow the stories and the people that are doing things worth knowing about.
