We can’t even shrug this one off as “kids will be kids,” because sucking on a shot glass to make your lips swell up is one of the dumbest things we’ve ever seen.
And scads of teens are pulling this dangerous stunt as part of the social media trend, #KylieJennerChallenge.
The goal: To have pouty, luscious lips like Kylie Jenner of the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” clan, who swears that she did nothing to artificially enhance her lips. (Yeah, right.)
The method: Putting your lips into a small glass container like a shot glass, bottle or jar and sucking as hard as you can like a vacuum.

The result: Huge, swollen, painful, inflamed, nasty-looking lips that leave some kids in tears.
People, stop. Just stop!
And if you won’t listen to your elders – doctors are warning that this could lead to permanent disfigurement – know that people are laughing at you, not with you.
So just stop.
