Boner Candidate #1: BENADRYL TIKTOK

Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson is warning parents of the perils of TikTok’s viral Benadryl challenge after several teens overdosed while performing the stunt. “The Benadryl TikTok trend is extremely concerning, dangerous and should be stopped immediately,” the antihistamine’s manufacturer told TooFab Monday about the foolhardy feat. The challenge, which involves taking enough Benadryl to hallucinate and posting the footage on the video-sharing platform, was blamed for the death of a 15-year-old Oklahoma girl last month, reports local news station KFOR. According to the report, the faith-driven teen was happy and “not one to experiment with drugs.” The harebrained experiment also resulted in the hospitalizations of at least three young people in Fort Worth, Texas, in May, KFOR reports. Unfortunately, the dozen or so doses required to induce hallucination can also “cause something potentially life-threatening,” according to Scott Schaeffer, director of the Oklahoma Center for Poison and Drug Information. “Large amounts of Benadryl can cause seizures and, particularly, problems with the heart. The heart tends to go out of rhythm and not pump blood effectively,” he added.

Boner Candidate #2: BUFFY WICKS….DOING THE PEOPLE’S WORK

WASHINGTON – California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon is being criticized online after denying proxy voting implemented by coronavirus concerns to a state lawmaker who recently gave birth. That lawmaker, Buffy Wicks, a Democrat, then brought her newborn baby to the Assembly floor, saying she will “*always show up” to debate on issues, such as housing. Wicks gave birth in late July and traveled with her newborn to Sacramento for the final day of the session. Legislation was debated until midnight. Proxy voting allows members unable to come to the floor during the coronavirus pandemic to designate another lawmaker as their “proxy” and cast floor votes on their behalf. Wicks, a former staffer for President Barack Obama, had been told that giving birth did not qualify her as high risk for COVID-19, according to POLITCO. “Yep, I’m here! (And so is Elly)” Wicks posted to Twitter Monday night. In a video on the Assembly floor, Wicks can be seen bouncing her 1-month-old baby and donning a face mask.
