The viral pen challenge is a thing and it might be the most bizarre way ever to procrastinating studying
There’s another challenge viral-ing (not a word, probably) it’s way around the internet, and it involves students finding out how many pens they can hold with their heads. Because why would you study for finals when there are pens to shove in your nose?
The strange, but oddly popular challenge is the brainchild of Twitter user Lauren, aka @joshaudn. She distracted herself from doing school work by challenging herself to see how many pens her head could hold.
And she found her answer:
And that’s where the challenge started. Another procrastinating student took on the pens-in-every-crevice challenge.
So Lauryn kept upping her game.
And so did the the other student.
Both teens clearly own more pens than any human alive.
And then other students got involved.
And made some really great points about pens.
It was all so weird.
So thanks to a bunch of students who didn’t feel like studying, we now know that heads can, in fact, hold many, many pens. We just have to hope that this challenge remains all in safe fun and that no embarrassing ER trips for emergency pen-from-nose removals occur.
