Newest social media craze is just that...crazy ...
By Kyra Kyles
I get it. You’re bored. So am I.
If you’re in Chicago or anywhere else in the Midwest that’s buried in snow and facing record breaking icy temperatures, you might be feeling a little bit like Jack Nicholson in “The Shining.” (Hopefully, without the axe and access to a maze.)
But if you are indeed bored, might I recommend you catch up on your reading, challenge someone to Words with Friends, play some board games or learn how to cook a new recipe or something?
I mean, with all the technology we have at our disposal, how do you get so mentally unstimulated that you find yourself butt arse naked swimming around in snow drifts and recording it for posterity?
With people actually suffering frostbite, heart attacks and the like out here I am actually out and out appalled at this “snow challenge,” aka the new viral foolishness akin to gallon smashing, planking, the cinnamon challenge or whatever GloZell is doing…
Homeless shelters are overcrowded and you want to body surf in a bank of snow? If you’re that thirsty for attention, keep competing in the Selfie Olympics or something.

That is actually funny, and for now at least, won’t result in frostbite to your nether regions.
