If you’ve missed the Coronavirus Challenge, now’s your opportunity to get on board.
Sure — a lot of places are closed right now, and that includes public restrooms. But if you can find a mass-use toilet bowl and slather your tongue all over it, you too can become part of history.
As reported by The Sun, earlier this month, one such brave soul was “Larz,” who videoed himself hitting the head only to act as if he’d hit his head: The dude licked that seat good.
In fact, the 21-year-old tongued it twice. Or was it three times?
You show that toilet bowl who’s boss, Larz.
If you were wondering what hands are cupping our future, here they are:
But wait, there’s more — Larz has since posted a new video, with a whole different kind of crappiness: The Beverly Hills resident now says he’s got COVID-19.
From The Daily Mail:
Larz…who was also part of a craze which saw youngsters licking tubs of ice cream in supermarkets, revealed in a since-deleted tweet: “I tested positive for Coronavirus.”
The post which includes a video of him languishing in a hospital bed is a far cry from the foul video he posted five days ago of him licking a public toilet seat, which was captioned: “RT (retweet) to spread awareness for the Coronavirus.”

As noted by the Mail, Larz previously appeared on Dr. Phil “with another influencer, Bameron Kall, 20, where they discussed how they had licked tubs of ice cream and spat mouthwash back into the bottle in viral videos.”

About his claim to have contracted the Wuhan flu, Twitter had thoughts:
Larz, a 21-year-old TikTok influencer from California, who licked a toilet bowl is now supposedly in the hospital with the coronavirus.

Purportedly, his MIA Twitter handle was “GayShawnMenendez”:
His twitter account was @GayShawnMendez but it seems to be gone now. He was also making videos last year of licking the ice cream and putting it back in the freezer at the grocery store.

Other comments weren’t fit for print.
One person especially not impressed by Larz is British media personality Piers Morgan.
As relayed by The Sun, Piers thinks the “influencer” should be tossed into the Clink:
Morgan also questioned why this “moron” is being treated.
“He should be in jail, not taking up a vital hospital bed,” the commentator tweeted.
The co-host of Good Morning Britain believes the culprit should face criminal charges.
“These people need to be arrested & charged with attempted murder. I’m serious,” Morgan wrote.
Of course, the whole thing could be a publicity stunt — which, perhaps, might be dumber than licking a toilet bowl.
It’s a strange time, and people are doing some interesting things to pass the seconds.

But not all battles against boredom are created equal. Unsolicited advice: If you wanna go out in the yard to hit a few balls, enlist someone other than your elderly mother as pitcher:
"Isolation going well. Don't bowl there mum!"
