Over the past month, Something Awful writer and influential Twitterer Johnny "DocEvil" Titanium has been asking the lead singer of Smash Mouth to eat 24 eggs, supposedly for charity. Soon, his many followers heeded the call, and continued pestering Smash Mouth via Twitter, Facebook and many other venues, pledging to donate to charity, getting some corporate sponsorship, shaming the media into covering it, and making songs and AMVs to show their support for the Smash Mouth "Egg Challenge."
Well, to the surprise of everyone, the challenge has been accepted:
OK fans-We accept your egg challenge. If you can raise $10,000 for our favorite charity then it's ON! http://t.co/2DWlJZ5
