So unfortunately what you're about to read is actually a THING...in real life.
That's right Luvies...the "Sleepy Chicken" Challenge is a REAL thing people (Stupid People albeit) are doing for likes and views on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram.
What does the challenge entail...well take a look below...
Yup...that fool actually cooked his chicken breasts in NyQuil people!!!
Now, according to my friends at Bon Appetite magazine the Sleepy Chicken concoction is not new to the internet. In fact, it first surfaced back in 2017 on 4Chan and how now made its way to more mainstream platforms like TikTok and Instagram and clearly Twitter as well and this has some people over at the FDA very concerned!
So much so they issued an actual WARNING regarding cooking your chicken in NyQuil....
The challenge sounds silly and unappetizing - and it is. But it could also be. very unsafe. Boiling medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways. Even if you don't eat the chicken, inhaling the medication's vapors while cooking could cause high levels of the drugs to enter your body. It could also hurt your lungs. Put Simply: Someone could take a dangerously high amount of the cough and cold medicine without even realizing it.
Nope...you read that right. Just the VAPORS (the steam we saw in the original video) is enough to do some serious damage!!!
Seriously, every time I think we've seen the absolute dumbest and most absurd thing on social media...Tide Pod Challenge anyone...the internet turns around and says "Here...Hold My Beer"!!!
Parents Im so not mad at any of you who have banned or at the least stalk your kids social media accounts for any potential baffoonery 'cuz these kids are W-I-L-D in 2022 & will clearly do just about anything for likes & views...
