The Condom Challenge is Something That’s Actually Happening

We have good news, readers:

Teens across the country are using condoms more than ever before.

But we also have some bad news:

These teens are not necessarily using the condoms for safe sex.

Instead of wrapping the condom around their penis or their partner's penis, these people are sucking the prophylactics through their noses and then taking them out of their mouths.

No, really.

We're not kidding:

Just like past idiotic trends such as the Tide Pods challenge, something called the "Condom Snorting Challenge" is sadly sweeping the nation.

Videos of teens doing taking this ridiculous action have been on the Internet for years, but there's been a new proliferation in recent days.

Needless to say, although we will anyway, condoms can be a choking hazard; they can also cause appendicitis if swallowed.

Moreover, they can cause an allergic reaction… and it’s even possible that nasal passages and/or sinuses could get infected because nothing but air is supposed to pass through them.

They really are not meant to be a corridor for condoms is the point here.

Does this look remotely enjoyable?

Or comfortable? 

Or worth doing just so you can gain a few new followers on social media?

We guess the answers have to be yes, for some people out there at least.

For others, it's simply enjoyable to sit back and make fun of these individuals.

To wit:

Jana Duggar-Caleb Williams Courtship: It’s Really Happening!

Last month, reports of Jana Duggar being courted by multiple suitors began to circulate on social media.

One of the men, Jacob Wilson, was quick to rebuke the report, but interestingly, the other rumored love interest has yet to expressly deny that he and Jana are courting.

That man is named Caleb Williams, and Duggar fans have become intensely interested in his life and social media profiles in recent weeks.

Some Duggar obsessives have surmised that Caleb is a “rebel,” who will no doubt have a difficult time convincing Jana’s father, Jim Bob Duggar, that he’s son-in-law material.

Of course, that characterization seems to be based primarily on a handful of comments made by a friend of Caleb’s, who stated that he believes the Arkansas-based small business owner is more “liberal” than the Duggars.

(As fans of the family know, falling to the left of the Duggars on the political spectrum is not exactly a difficult task. Steve Bannon is basically an unkempt hippie compared to Jim Bob.)

But based on his most recent social media posts, we think it’s safe to say Caleb has had no trouble ingratiating himself with Jana’s ultra-conservative family:

That’s Williams with Jim Bob Duggar at a recent Arkansas Razorbacks football game.

“Thanks for the invite y’all! #gametime #wrongcolors #wps #beatauburn,” Williams captioned the pic.

(Sadly, he failed to give a shoutout to the dude photobombing in the back.)

Yes, the caption seems to indicate that Jim Bob was the one to invite Caleb to the game, which many have taken as a sign that the two enjoy some sort of special connection these days.

After all, with 19 kids and an endless list of well-wishers, it’s not like Jim Bob has trouble finding someone to attend a football game with him.

But as much as Duggar fans have scrutinized the photo above, it’s a post on Caleb’s page has garnered even more attention:

That’s Caleb holding Josh Duggar’s infant son, Mason.

“First time holding sweet baby Mason! Thanks for letting me hold him @joshduggar @annaduggar @duggarfam #BabyMason,” Caleb captioned the image.

Yes, Caleb tagged Josh Duggar (who apparently has an Instagram page), and he’s been spending time with the black sheep branch of the Duggar clan.

Josh mostly lives the reclusive Boo Radley life these days, so the fact that Caleb has been spending time with him is an indication that he’s truly been granted access to the family’s inner sanctum.

Perhaps there’s something to these courtship rumors, after all.

Kylie Jenner Pregnancy Announcement: Finally Happening?!

If you’ve been anywhere near an internet-enabled device in the past three weeks, then by now you’ve almost certainly heard the news that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott’s baby.

Actually, that last part has been called into question thanks to Tyga’s claims that the baby is his, but while the paternity debate might rage on for the foreseeable future, there’s no doubt that Kylie is indeed knocked up.

Which is weird, because thus far, she’s made no official announcement to that effect.

Yes, despite all of the media coverage surrounding Kylie’s baby bump, the 20-year-old has yet to confirm that she’s expecting.

Kylie, of course, is a master of public relations (you don’t amass 100 million Instagram followers just by having big lips), so many fans have assumed she’s planning to break the news in memorable fashion.

But is she?

After all, Kylie is savvy enough to know that her method of making the big announcement is sure to be overshadowed by the news itself.

As a result of that fact, it seems she’s decided to confirm her pregnancy using the same medium that she always uses to communicate with fans.

“Kylie will announce her pregnancy on Instagram in the next week or so,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.

“And she believes that she is going to break the internet when she does.”

Despite recent reports that Kylie is “freaking out” about becoming a mom, the insider insists that she couldn’t the reality star has never been happier.

So why the low-profile in recent weeks?

Well, that may have to do with Kylie’s obsession with physical “perfection.”

The source says Kylie is “terrified” of how fans will react to her weight gain.

We understand the inclination toward self-consciousness, but we think Kylizzle should give her faitful followers more credit on this one.

Not only have they proven time and again that they’re unconditionally devoted to their queen, but some of them might be even more excited about this news than she is.

We doubt anyone is looking to bash Kylie for the changes in her appearance.

And if anyone tries it, they’ll promptly be torn limb-from-limb by more diehard Kylie aficionados.


Kylie Jenner Wedding Update: Is It Really Happening?!

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Kylie Jenner is pregnant with her first child.

Kylie got knocked up by presumably soon-to-be retired rapper Travis Scott.

(Fact: You don’t have to work after you get a Kardashian pregnant. Time to hang up the Nikes, Tristan!)

Come to think of it, that’s not necessarily true.

It’s not enough just to get a member of the Kard clan pregnant, as Scott Disick learned the hard way.

You have to lock that relationship down in order to live off that sweet Kim sex tape money for the rest of your days.

That means marriage, and though a wedding is probably next on Travis Scott’s agenda, it may be a long way off.

Rumors about Kylie and Travis being engaged start circulating long before we knew she was pregnant.

In fact, there are some who have claimed that Kylie and Travis are secretly married.

But it seems the reports of Kylie getting hitched have been greatly exaggerated.

In fact, it sounds like she’s not even certain that she and Travis will continue dating.

And when you look at the facts of her pregnancy, that’s not terribly surprising.

So far, we know that Kylie is expecting a girl, and she’s about five months along.

Since she and Travis started dating in April, that means they were only together a few weeks before she found out she was expecting.

So it’s safe to assume that the pregnancy wasn’t planned.

And it’s equally safe to assume that Travis and Kylie won’t be sprinting down the aisle anytime soon.

“They’re still trying to figure out their relationship,” a source close to the couple tells TMZ.

The insider adds that Kylie has no qualms about being a single mom.

Her oldest sister is an unwed mother of three; Kim Kardashian had her first child before she married Kanye West; and now Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with Tristan Thompson’s baby, and there are no wedding plans there either.

So it sounds like Travis may have to continue working after all.

On the bright side, we’re guessing his music has enjoyed quite a sales bump over the past week.
