"Tide Pod eating is so yesterday,"— today's youth, I assume. Just months after eating laundry detergent went viral, there's a new challenge plaguing today's youth: The deodorant challenge. Teens are allowing their peers to spray deodorant on them for as long as they can stand, and they're getting seriously burned as a result.

A post shared by Allison Harvard (@alliharvard) on May 30, 2013 at 9:23pm Pdt Short version: Allison rose to prominence on the Internet like forever long before Instagram was even in utero.
