Please be aware of the Momo Challenge !

Posted 03 March 2019 - 10:55 AM

Parents please be aware and very cautious of what your child watches on YouTube and KIDS YOUTUBE. There is a thing called ‘Momo’ that’s instructing kids to kill themselves, turn stoves on while everyone is sleep and even threatening to kill the children if they tell their parents!!!

Yes, and people run fake kids shows telling them to do the same thing on youtube.

Unrelated, but for general consumption..

I had the Momo talk with my kids over the weekend. It went like this:

Me: "Hey, guys, apparently we need to have a chat about Momo."

Kid 1: "Oh my gawd. Are you serious?!"

Me: "Yep. Momo is apparently some kind of a newfangled thang you younguns are into these days."

Kid 2: "Mom, Momo isn't even real."

Me: "Regardless, if Momo tells you to do something, don't fucking do it. It's that simple."

Kid 1: "Momo is a sculpture from Japan, the artist destroyed it, and the whole thing is an internet hoax to scare old people into bothering their kids."

Kid 2: "Thank you for coming to our TEDTalk."

My daughter didn't need the talk. She had some kid at her old school say that his dad was going to kill me, she said she wanted to watch and asked who he was bring with him, cause she's heard stories of me taking on 16 people at once. So, 1 isn't a sufficient force.

It was a hoax then people didn't realize it was a hoax so they added to it. It was a joke that got out of hand. ffs.

Clearly this is an effort by the wonton lobby, trying to keep the Tibetans down.

I think that "challenge" has become the most overused word. It's lost some meaning. Here's a good example. While I'm completely in favor of throwing food at kids, it's hardly a "challenge." I mean, they can't even run very fast, if at all. Many of them just kind of sit there. They probably deserve to get hit in the face with a block of cheese, but it's not much of a challenge.

I think of it as "challenge" being a synonym for "dare."

Like, "I dare you to thwap your kid in the face with a pound and a half of cheese and post it on the interwebz. LOLZ."

But it's more formal, like, "I extend to thee a challenge, that thou shalt taketh of the solidfied milk fermentations and, upon the cherubic face of thine offspring, chuck it - then regale us with the tale for our own delight upon thy holy, most sacred shrine of technological wonderment. Hearty, jovial laugher."
