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.

You BEST be trolling.

The thought that people need to see a celebrity eat eggs in order to give money to charity makes me cringe.

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.

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?

Still a ridiculous request. Even more insane is to get angry at this guy for not wanting to do something that he never offered to do. As others have said, people's charity shouldn't depend on some guy doing some random act that he obviously doesn't want to do.

He was going to eat those eggs to help the dying children but then he was all "fuck it, let's rock."

I'd never want to see a chicken again!

I would. Inside my oven. It's reasonable that the guy does not want to do it - at the end of the day, eating 24 eggs is something I couldn't personally do either, so I'm not going to demand that this guy does it as well. Why doesn't the charity just give the money in? That would be kinder to everyone, including the Smash Mouth lead singer.

What does eating 24 eggs have to do with charity? Who came up with that? And why does it have to be him? Find somebody else willing to do it! Leave the guy alone! If he doesn't want to, then oh well! 
 
Smash Mouth is a crappy band anyways.

I think a little backstory should be given: Twitter user @fart asked the lead singer of Smash Mouth to eat 24 eggs and then asked his followers to help him in his campaign. Since then hundreds of people have pledged thousands of dollars to it. Unfortunately the members of Smash Mouth (and apparently the Giant Bomb community) literally hate the sick/children and want them all to die.

please eat thhe eggs smashmouth. please

What does the 24 eggs have to do with them giving them money? Why not cook those kids a egg breakfast have em give them a high five and be done with it!

This is the most retarded thing I've ever heard. If people want to help save dying children they can go give money to charity, not egg on some guy to eat eggs!

Remember when people gave money to charity to save dying children right off the bat? What happened there? Now we're forcing some asshole most notable for being in that movie "Rat Race" to eat a bunch of eggs to save those children.

@sixpin: When was the last time anyone ever thought about Smash Mouth?  Some goon just had a wild thought and ran with it.  It is just good wholesome fun not some evil ulterior motive to deprive sick children of much needed funds.

I'm not sure what's more confusing, the fact that someone is being requested to eat 24 eggs for charity or that we're talking about Smash Mouth in 2011?

Dumbest shit I've every read, you can't save people by eating eggs just fucking donate the money. Lastly, 24 eggs? Not easy.  
EDIT: Also money doesn't save children, if they're actually "dying" from say AIDS or cancer, chances are money already won't save them.

If they're deviled then I'd say you gotta eat 48 of them seeing as the standard deviled egg is made from half an egg.

@bartok: This thread is about a campaign to try and get this guy to do something he doesn't want by guilting him into compliance. That is scummy.

That's dumb. Forcing someone to do something because of any reason, even charity, is just wrong. If he doesn't want to do it then he doesn't have to. Trying to guilt him into doing it is terrible.

You've got to be a fucking asshole if you will only donate to save dying children if there is some entertainment as a stimulus or reward.

Totally. Can't blame him for not doing it. It doesn't make him a terrible person. I'm sure he donates plenty to children in need.

It's called freedom of will, sometimes people choose to do things you don't agree with, but that's a price you pay for having a free choice. As long as he is not actively hurting anyone it is his choice.

Its a very assy move to bad mouth ( no pun intended ) a guy because he wont do something. and its an even assyer move to put him in a position where the only "right" thing to do is the thing you don't want to do.

what if i told you that i would give 100 dollars to the make a wish foundation for every man you slept with.

Yeah, unless I see some proof that they pledged any money, I'm calling bullshit troll campaign on this one. If he does go through with it, chances are no money will be donated to anything.

It's nice to know that every time I eat scrambled eggs I'm saving a dying child somewhere. Never doubt the power of eggs!

On the other hand just think how many baby chickens yuo'd be saving if you didn't eat the eggs. Hmmm...now I'm conflicted.

That's quite a bit of cholesterol in one sitting. I can eat maybe 4-5 eggs depending on how they are prepared, but after a while, eggs kinda get gross the more you eat at the same time.

So I just saved two dying children this morning when I had breakfast. I'm practically a saint.

I hope whoever made that wish dies slowly, painfully, and without that wish ever coming true. That's about as nice as I'm gonna get with an article this stupid.

This is fucking sick, just read what this guy says:

"Let me have complete control of your body, Smash Mouth. I promise we'll just eat eggs together. Give me the power to move you around and be you for a day. All I'll do is help you eat the eggs, and move your jaw around while I say in a funny voice "Smash Mouth Eating The Eggs" and make funny noises."
 
 
 I don't care if it's a joke, that's just fucking creepy.

Having a bunch of people spam Smash Mouth with requests to "EAT THE EGGS" out of nowhere could be pretty funny. It's when you add the nonsense about him refusing to help a charity and what have you when the gag goes south. It goes from being kind of funny to just a bunch of people being assholes.
