So, I was nominated for the ice bucket challenge yesterday. Aside from the fact that these videos are now doing my nut in, I can’t help but think that they are a massive waste of water. Now obviously, I’m not saying that raising awareness for a worthy charity such as ALS is a waste of time and effort, but when you look at the figures it does seem slightly insensitive to me. So here’s my response:

Ice Bucket Challenge apology

Before anyone starts, this is not a dig at ALS sufferers, ALS research, or the people that have nobly donated their money to help the cause. It’s just the thoughts of a grumpy, cynical, intolerant man. I am not a renegade or revolutionary, trying to start some sort of viral opposition to the Ice Bucket Challenge.
