Don't Twizzle, just hand over the cash

Oh, God. There's a new Ice Bucket Challenge. This one's called 'The Twizzler Challenge'. It goes as follows: two people are nominated by a former participant. These two then have to buy a Twizzler liquorice stick and eat it from opposing ends (like Lady and the Tramp) until they come together in the centre in an 'accidental' kiss.

US TV personalities, like Kathie Lee Gifford and Matt Lauer (inset) have leapt onto this bandwagon so it can only be a matter of time before it jumps the pond and we're subjected to an unending stream of celebrities videoing themselves doing it too. But I've an idea for an another challenge - give a charity some money. That's it. Just give a few euro to someone who needs it. The first time you see an Irish celeb doing the Twizzler challenge, maybe make the same suggestion to them.
