Most of you are probably not aware of this, but Steve Harwell, front man of 90's sensation Smash Mouth and composer of all those songs from Shrek, has refused an offer made by the Make a Wish foundation to eat 24 eggs on camera for charity. He hasn't simply declined, he has flat out ignored their request along with the cries of the hundreds of Smash Mouth and charity fans pleading him to do the right thing for no good reason.This kind of behavior is not only rude, it is completely unacceptable.

Thousands of dollars have already been pledged to help save dying children and more is coming in each day from charitable donors around the world, but Smash Mouth still refuses to listen. We are going to have to make them listen.

That is why I would like to ask you, Giantbomb, to help out this great cause and get Steve Harwell to eat 24 eggs on camera to help save dying children.

If you hate dying children but also hate eggs, this also works.

If you would like to help get the word out then here is what you can do: tell everyone you know, reply to Smash Mouth on Twitter, post on their facebook wall, comment on all their youtube videos, and send emails regarding your disappointment in Steve's refusal to help save dying children.

I know if we work together we can help Smash Mouth eat 24 eggs and make the world a better place.

Here is a song a guy wrote about the eggs.

But it's a stupid request that makes absolutely no sense.

I guess they will have to smash his mouth open.

I wouldn't eat anything I didn't want to for charity or anything. Why should he? Why don't the people that are trying to make him eat 24 eggs just give the fucking money? That's what's really selfish. Trying to making some one do something they don't want for Charity sounds like an ends to a fucking means to me.

EDIT: I'd eat 24 eggs....

If they were scrambled and served with bacon.

EDIT 2: and free

Since you're always bathing in sarcasm, i'm not taking this thread seriously, yet 
 
what fucking kind of request is that anyway? fuck that.

#6 Posted by DeeGee (2096 posts) -

What the fuck will a man eating eggs on camera do to save dying children?

#7 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -

I wouldn't eat 24 eggs for chairty, thats a pretty tough thing to do, even if they were cooked, I'd never want to see a chicken again!

#8 Posted by Morien (159 posts) -

While I don't agree with Steve Harwell's decision to not help Make a Wish Foundation, I do respect his freedom of choice. Anyone who has a problem with that should just donate money to Make a Wish and get over it, let the guy live his own life.

#9 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Let the man do whatever the fuck he wants.
 
Hell, let that charity give those 24 eggs to starving kids instead of wasting them.

#10 Posted by SlasherMan (1725 posts) -

This makes no sense whatsoever.

#11 Posted by Venatio (4485 posts) -

What? That's stupid and it's their right to refuse

#12 Posted by Burzmali (452 posts) -

Maybe the dude doesn't like eggs. I hate sour cream, to the point that it makes me feel a little sick if I so much as touch a dollop of it. If you told me you would give $200,000 to charity if I ate a tub of sour cream, I'd have to pass. Then I'd ask why you're such a jerk that you have $200k lying around, ready to give to charity, and you won't. If I had $200k to spare, I'd give it to charity without thinking about it. I wouldn't make someone do something idiotic before I donated.

I love how Smash Mouth is now immediately associated to Shrek now

#14 Posted by Shuborno (935 posts) -

Did you make up this story to get people to spam Smash Mouth?

I Googled: "steve harwell eggs make a wish" and this thread is the only relevant thing that comes up.

#15 Posted by Marz (5608 posts) -

seriously... the person who made the wish should eat 24 eggs.  Just a dumb request.

#16 Posted by onimonkii (2421 posts) -

smash mouth still exists?

#17 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4481 posts) -

Why should he?

I know, right? I remember when they were still a ska punk band.

My thoughts exactly. What kind of an idiot came up with that?
#20 Posted by sixpin (1277 posts) -

That is the dumbest thing I've heard today. Why force a man into eating 24 eggs when he clearly doesn't want to? Why not ask him if he'd do something else? That's over 5,000mg of cholesterol and over 1,700 Calories! Are they trying to kill him? I love eggs, but I wouldn't do that either.

#21 Posted by Matoya (416 posts) -

Why? 
 
You can't make someone do something they don't want to, and shouldn't stigmatise someone for living their lives how they pick

Yeah, that and any normal person would probably be sick after eating 5 or more eggs.
#25 Posted by JackSukeru (5817 posts) -

I'd eat 24 eggs if they were all taken from starving children.

#26 Posted by ProfessorEss (7123 posts) -

I think it's even ruder to volunteer someone else to do something for charity, and ruder still to imply that that person is being rude after declining the offer that they so rudely volunteered for him to do for them. 
 
...and then using dying children as the tent post of their argument is just icing on the cake. 

#27 Posted by Trilogy (2570 posts) -

I'm just going to assume this is a joke. That way my head won't explode.

#28 Posted by mfpantst (2574 posts) -

nothing fucking makes sense anymore.

#29 Posted by Aperture_Science (20 posts) -

also Make a Wish foundation don't save dying children (despite at least 4 mentions), just help severely & terminally ill children's wishes come true.

it's okay to check your facts if your not recording a podcast

#30 Posted by luce (4045 posts) -

What ever happened to just donating money? 

#31 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

Lol that is stupid as hell. Why would they get him to eat 24 eggs....to save dying children, this makes no sense what so ever.

#32 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

I fucking hate Smash Mouth. However, it's not his fault he was put in this incredibly stupid situation.

#33 Edited by MayorFeedback (672 posts) -

God, this thread is the best.

#34 Posted by GoodKn1ght (491 posts) -

So if smash mouth eats 24 eggs, the make a wish foundation will donate money? I'm confused on where exactly the money is coming from...

eggs eaten > revenue > total sales x number of fans > no more starvation 
#36 Posted by FEnergyLegs (63 posts) -

Wow, I didn't know so much of Giantbomb hates charity. If SmashMouth doesn't go through it isn't only their fault that children die, it is also yours.

The guy who started the challenge stated that the lead singer from Smash Mouth could eat just 24 egg whites served  in any manner he pleases.  This isn't Cool Hand Luke.  
If it were me and I was part of a 90's pop band I would eat a 24 egg white omelet with spinach, onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Won't somebody please think of the children?
#38 Edited by MisterMouse (3531 posts) -

I wonder what his reasoning behind not wanting to do it is. 
 
Also don't take this the wrong way but I feel like these requests from this group turn out to be more demands of whomever they are asking. It is a weird situation...

Nice... also Why not asking him to make a song or something like that... Eating 24 eggs just seems stupid.
#40 Posted by dungbootle (2454 posts) -

Don't know how I feel about this.

#41 Posted by ReyGitano (2465 posts) -

I like eggs, but I don't like them that much. The task seems ridiculous.

#42 Edited by Three0neFive (2275 posts) -

Fuck that shit.
 
People shouldn't be guilted into charity. He doesn't owe jack shit to anyone, and he's under no obligation to waste his time like that. Why do people feel like they should be compensated for donating to charity - if anything, that makes them selfish.

Oh fuck off. If you want to donate to charity, go ahead- just don't expect anything in return. Nothing's stopping these people from donating the money and saving lives except their selfish desire to see some famous guy humiliated.
#43 Posted by BrainSpecialist (555 posts) -

What I find odd is that someone wouldn't give thousands of dollars to charity unless Smash Mouth ate 24 eggs.

#44 Posted by bartok (2371 posts) -
@Three0neFive:  Are you the lead singer of Smashmouth?
#45 Posted by Jace (1092 posts) -

Wow, just wow. That would be like someone telling me, "If you can't eat these 15 hotdogs to save a child, you're a bad person."

Fuck You.

#46 Posted by GoodKn1ght (491 posts) -

@Toms115: Actually it seems people are just pledgingmoney. Also this is stupid what is this guys problem, he really wants them to eat eggs....

#47 Posted by coakroach (2478 posts) -
Fuck Smash Mouth. Fuck that dumb ass way to raise money. Fuck you for giving those people attention. Fuck.
#48 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6788 posts) -

This is dumb as shit, maybe if they wanted to do something more meaningful than have a guy eat 24 eggs on camera, but that is just stupid.  I don't really blame the guy.  He might even fucking hate eggs.

#49 Posted by SuperSambo (2837 posts) -

What is this?

Im on the side of the singer, why should he have to eat 24 eggs?

(If this is a joke thread then...)

Exactly my thoughts on this.
