In “WTF” news, a Florida mom has been charged with a felony after posting a video of her daughter licking a tongue depressor and then putting it back into the jar at the doctor’s office. Apparently, nobody learned anything useful from 2019’s ice cream challenge.

Corey Ward, 30, posted the video to her Snapchat with the caption “Don’t tell me how to live my life.”

After receiving backlash for obvious reasons, Ward tried to defend herself by explaining the difference between her daughter’s actions and the ice cream challenge. She claims that the contaminated items were thrown away after the video.

“The video doesn’t show that the items were thrown away or anything else that happened.

I posted this on my personal Snapchat with my 20-something friends, where someone allowed another person to video it.

I didn’t post it on Facebook or YouTube as a challenge or whatever.”

Ward is now facing a felony charge for tampering with a consumer product without regard for possible death or bodily injury.

If convicted, she could face up to 30 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

The ice cream challenge went viral in 2019. Multiple people were arrested for attempting the challenge, including the originator, a teenage girl from Texas.

The original video showed her licking a container of Blue Bell’s Tin Roof ice cream and then putting it back into the freezer at Walmart.

So yeah, maybe not ever do anything like that? It clearly will get you in trouble… and make all your friends think you’re super gross.

Worth it? Nope!
