I am completely baffled by this "ice bucket" thing.
What in the name of fuck is it all about?
As far as I can gather, someone has to be "challenged". They have to then endure being filmed while someone pours very cold water over them. The film is then put up on YouTube [*sigh*] and the victim then challenges someone else. Is that it?
What is the point?
They say it's in the good cause of a charity for Motor Neuron Disease, though other charities have been cashing in of late. What has MND got to do with iced water? Or am I missing something?
I am all for supporting charities. There are a lot of them around and in most cases they are dependent on the generosity of the public. I just fail to see where taking films of oneself being drenched has any connection. Is it just one of these "crazes" or fads that happens occasionally? In my day there were intermittent fads for yo-yos or marbles, but now it seems to be fads for sticking videos or photographs on the Interweb in the name of some charity or other.
Why can't people just politely ask other people to support some worthy cause? Why does it have to involve some kind of tacky gimmick or other? Or are people just so desperately insecure that they have to have pictures and videos of themselves in the sad and vain hope that they will go "viral" [and I’m not sure what that “viral” crap is about either]?
I haven't been challenged which is good, as I don't particularly like telling people to go fuck themselves even in the name of charity. Now there's a thought – let's start a craze for videos of people fucking themselves in the name of some worthy cause?
Herself did actually get a challenge.
Herself was challenged to sit while someone poured iced water over her.
I fucked her out into the rain and locked the door for half an hour.
I told her it was all in a good cause.
