“I don’t know why they make them look so delicious,” said the United States Senator.

In recent months, many people began noticing memes and jokes appearing online about people eating “Tide Pods,” the conveniently prepackaged laundry detergent capsules that you throw in the washing machine. At first, we all thought that this was some kind of joke, that people could not possibly be doing something so obviously dangerous. However, videos began to circulate online showing large numbers of teens taking the “Tide Pod challenge,” by eating the detergent pods on camera.

This is a sad and strange testament to how far our society has fallen, and how young people have a total lack of concern for their health and their lives. There is not much that can be done about this as it is the symptom of a mass psychosis that has left millions of teens feeling like they have nothing to live for, aside from impressing strangers on the internet.

This is obviously not something that can be fixed with laws or regulation, but don’t tell that to Senator Charles Schumer of New York, “The Empire State.” When Tide Pod consumption first became an issue, Schumer gave a press conference demanding that The Consumer Product Safety Commission crackdown on detergent companies who use colorful “pods” for their soap. Schumer said these pods are tempting for children to eat because of how they look. He then admitted that he has wanted to eat tide pods in the past.

“The incidents are skyrocketing, these pods were supposed to make household chores easier, not tempt our children to swallow harmful chemicals. I saw one on my staffer’s desk and I wanted to eat it,” Schumer said, adding that, “I don’t know why they make them look so delicious.”

Schumer said that he is not interested in flat-out banning the pods, but says that further regulation is needed.

“We don’t want to throw out the baby with the detergent water,” he said.

This press conference happened before the trend caught on, back in 2012, and was directed more at children than teens, but these comments are still relevant to the discussion, as politicians are renewing calls for regulation. These comments also seem even more ridiculous in light of people eating these pods intentionally.

Dr. Rais Vohra, a medical toxicologist at UCSF Fresno, told CNN that the pods can burn a person’s insides.

“They can cause burns in the mouth, if the liquid bursts open and goes in the back of the throat, they could cause burns in the back of the throat which would necessitate an ER visit or even ICU admission,” Vohra said.

Some companies and stores have taken voluntary measures to increase the safety of the pods. For example, in May, Proctor and Gamble made the lids for the Tide Pod containers more difficult to open, and many grocery stores have taken measures to lock them behind the counter.

Poison control centers last year received 10,570 reports of children 5 or younger being exposed to laundry detergent packets.

    • “And the number 1 movie in the country was called “A$$” … and that’s all it was for 90 minutes. It won 8 Oscars that year, including best screenplay”. ~ Idiocracy

  1. I wish Schumer would go ahead and shove a couple pods down his stupid ass! Might improve his thinking process……….or at least shut that peephole awhile.
    And seriously? Congress has to get involved with stupid people eating laundry detergent? There aren’t any other problems in this Country that need solving or attention?

    • Not that know anything about the guy, but SCHUMER is a prick for even opening his stupid mouth and coming out with this utter bullshit. What a knobhead.

  2. I do feel sorry for the little kids who may make the mistake of thinking these pods are candy.

    But any teenager or kid above the age of 7- 9 yrs old, who dose this on a dare ? Or to get there face on the internet, is just as stupid as a wood post, and I think deserves their fate !

    If gasoline tasted good would you drink it !? How about shooting yourself in the head to see if it would work to clean out your ears !?

    That we need Congress, or some other Schmuck Senator to save ourselves from our own stupidity, speaks voluminousness to our level, of just how far it is that we want our Government to run our daily lives !

  3. By God!
    Just makes you proud of the intelligence of the thirty shekel whores employed by the corporation, in Washington DC!

    USA-USA-USA-USA!!!!!!

  4. It’s not really a crackdown, when the statement comes from a discussion held in September of 2012.

    Not that I doubt for a second that Schumer would think they look delicious but, no need to sensationalize the story, here.

  5. Why are we trying to stop darwinism? Let it happen. Mother Nature is getting impatient. Back in the day we used our own bodies for fun. Plenty of same gender, too. If these retards can’t figure themselves out, let them swallow tide pods.

  6. I’m sorry, are we all collectively losing our common sense!? It’s one thing when some kid without proper parental supervision is trying to eat these things, but a grown adult. They don’t look that much like candy and they certainly don’t feel like any candy I’ve ever known when picked up. If this isn’t just this guy being a political asshole and making up a story to use this tide pod eating thing to push his agenda…then he deserves whatever he gets for being dumb enough to eat one.

  7. Oh just fuckoff ! This is so pathetic and stupid, a 5 year old even knows that you don’t put ANY washing product in your mouth. And the dumb fuck fools that are actually doing this stupid challenge, well, you deserve to put yourself in the hospital if your that thick and immature to put a cleaning product for clothes in your mouth and actually bite it, then deal with the consequences. OR better still, JUST GROW THE HELL UP.

    These products are made colourful so that CONSUMERS buy them to wash their clothes with, you lot never heard of Psychology ? Or how businesses make you want to buy their products, there are warning signs all over the packaging, so if your THAT FUCKED IN THE HEAD to even attempt to do this then you damn well deserve what you get.

    The answer is No, I won’t apologise for my comments above, these are teens and adults that are doing this, I would expect that from a kid under the age of 5, not someone who is old enough to know better. OMG, I do not believe some of the people in this world and the stupidity that is part of them.
