The Choking Game? WTF?!

by - January 20, 2010

While I work through the night to get the morning show ready to be aired, I'm usually at least listening to a television set. Tonight it happened to be on CBS so at first I suffered through a couple late night talk shows (I was too lazy to get up and change them, you see.), and then Entertainment Tonight came on. Normally I don't really listen to their stories because I find them really shallow, i.e. Heidi Montag's 10 plastic surgeries in one day. But while their prattle was serving as background noise, something caught my attention. The words "The Choking Game" inevitably turned my attention away from the script I was editing to the television.

Apparently children/teenagers or as I prefer to think stupid people have been video-taping themselve playing what is called the Choking Game and then posting the videos on YouTube. Personally, I didn't search for or watch any actual Choking Game videos (I literally shuddered just listening to a kid explain the game), but if you're curious all you have to do is type in The Choking Game in the search bar and you'll get loads of hits.

The video below explains the specifics of the game and says basically what I was thinking when I first heard about this horrible game.
