Taco Tuesdays are one of our favorite days of the week. While we are sure that there are plenty of other people out there who treasure these days, we highly doubt that we are solely responsible for all of the tortillas that are currently flying off store shelves.

If you cannot find any tortillas at your local supermarket, you may have this social media craze to blame for it.

The tortilla challenge is here and there is no way that you are prepared for what it entails. Those who partake in the tortilla challenge have to hold water in their cheeks, as both parties take turns slapping at each other with said tortillas. The person who ends up spitting out their water the fastest is the one who is deemed the loser.

That’s quite the challenge and we do not know if we have the guts to participate. It is growing fast on social media, though. For example, there is one example that was posted by Patty Mac and it has already received over 60 million views. In this one, there are three competitors and it does not take long before they have all lost.

In some of the clips that we have seen, the slaps start to get increasingly intense. There’s a four-person attempt that we watched and it scared the daylights out of us. We had no idea that the slaps could get so outrageous. In fact, the four-person attempt looked like it got pretty personal. Hopefully, no one is using this challenge as an excuse to settle a score. Otherwise, things might get messy.

It is not like there is an unlimited amount of tortillas to be used for such an expressly silly purpose anyway. Even celebrities have decided to get in on the action, as there is a hilarious video of Demi Lovato and Jimmy Fallon partaking in the challenge. We knew that it would not be long before Jimmy decided he wanted in.

“Participating in this activity could result in you or others getting hurt,” TikTok warns. However, this one seems pretty tame when you compare it to other challenges that have become famous in recent years. We are shuddering when we think about the fact that people were walking up and down milk crates! With any luck, no one will get seriously hurt during the making of these videos, so that we can continue to laugh…
