The internet has really stepped up the weird stuff lately. People kept throwing their Vans sneakers around, others threw their Crocs around, and then there’s the messed up thing where an Aussie teen munched on a live possum like a burger.
Well time to add another one to the list as the latest weird viral thing is called the #Cheesed challenge.
It all began when some bloke threw a slice of cheese at a baby’s face and shared the video on Twitter. Pretty soon people also began throwing slices of cheese at babies and next thing we know a new viral trend was born.
Look, I don’t know how this became a thing but it did and I’m on the fence on this one to be frank with you all. On one hand, you’re traumatising a poor baby and breaking their trust in you by throwing a slice of cheese at them.
On the other hand, it’s pretty damn funny.
The highlight of my day was watching this video of someone throwing a slice of cheese on their baby…. what’s wrong with me and why am I still laughing? pic.twitter.com/ZHUB421SG2

Since the internet is, you know, the internet, people couldn’t stop at throwing cheese at babies and soon the #Cheesed challenge expanded to throwing cheese slices at dogs.
But whereas babies were either baffled, surprised, traumatised, or confused, dogs were a bit more clued in on what was going on and soon Twitter was inundated with videos of doggos outwitting their owners by simply catching the slices of cheese being lobbed at them.

That cheese challenge people are doing with babies doesn’t work so well on dogs. pic.twitter.com/KMkXFbx2iE

Some attempts didn’t go as expected.

It’s pretty amazing when you think about it.
We’re living in an age where all the information you could ever want is at your fingertips and yet all people want to do is throw slices of cheese at babies and dogs.
Ah, the internet. I wonder what you will spit out next.
