Internet users now being warned against COW KISSING CHALLENGE proving you just can’t fix stupid
According to the Daily Mail society has reached a new low. Of course somebody will eclipse it today. The newest challenge people in Austria are having to be warned against is the cow kissing challenge. You say it is in Austria I’m not worried about it. Well it is an internet challenge and eating Tide pods, the Birdbox challenge and many other internet challenges have proven you just can’t fix stupid.
A Swiss app called Castl launched the #KuhKussChallenge (‘Cow Kiss Challenge’) on Wednesday, encouraging users in Switzerland and other German-speaking countries to kiss cows – ‘with or without tongues’ – to raise money for charity.
But Austrian Agriculture Minister Elisabeth Koestinger branded the challenge a ‘dangerous nuisance’ in a statement on Thursday.
In a Youtube video of people performing the challenge one man clutches a bunch of flowers as he presses his lips to a cow to get it to ‘kiss’ him.
In February, a court in the Tyrol region caused uproar after ordering a farmer to pay 490,000 euros ($555,000) in compensation to the widower of a woman who was trampled to death by a herd of his cows in 2014.
The farmer is appealing the verdict and is being supported by Austria’s farmers’ federation, which has warned of the ‘end of our mountain pastures’ if the verdict is allowed to stand.
The government has tried to prevent such incidents by publishing a ‘code of conduct’ for mountain walkers and hikers, advising them to avoid herds of cows wherever possible.
‘Actions like this challenge fly in the face of our efforts to promote co-existence on the pastures. I simply can’t understand it,’ said Koestinger.
I am not sure if the internet has made people more stupid or it just became a forum for people to publish their stupidity by the cow kissing challenge proves once again that you just can’t fix stupid.
