Extreme Phone Pinching Is The Latest Internet Craze And It’s Probably A Terrible Idea

28816-1tx0dc1.JPG

The Internet has given us boundless communication, Wikipedia and YouTube to name a few joys of the digital age. It also birthed idiocy like happy slapping, neknominations and the cinnamon challenge, all of which only ever end in tears.

Gentlemen, welcome extreme phone pinching to the club.

No it doesn’t consist of trying to crush your phone with only your thumb and forefinger. It’s the act of holding your phone by its corner over the absolute last place you would want to tempt fate.

Like a drain.

Or a cliff.

If it doesn’t give you some kind of anxiety, you’re either being paid too much or lack human emotions.

Inevitably some fool loses their phone and reacts comically, but we give it a month before someone takes a tumble with their device and it stops being funny.

Never has the urge to *facepalm* been so strong.
