The condom-snorting challenge is the latest stupid internet challenge making a comeback among teenagers, according to reports.

Yahoo! reported that teenagers are putting condoms up their nostrils and inhaling them with the goal of getting the condom to come out of their mouth.

The return of the condom challenge comes after the rise in popularity of the Tide Pod challenge, which drew a warning from the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

According to Yahoo!, the challenge can be dangerous because the condom can become a choking hazard if it blocks the airway. Yahoo! added that snorting condoms can cause infections and allergic reactions in the nasal cavity.
