What would you do for fifteen minutes of Internet fame? This past week,15 year old Giovanna Plowman posted a truly disgusting video of herself to You Tube, all in the hopes of gaining Internet notoriety. Before you can say feminine hygenie products, the video goes viral and Giovanna is a YouTube hit. I have to wonder if fleeting Internet fame is worth a lifetime of being known as the girl who ate the used tampon or as she is being referred to on social media,"Tampon Girl".
Before today, had you heard about "Tampon Girl"?
Why do you think people are willing to go to extreme lengths to gain internet 'fame' or popularity?
What is the most extreme thing you or your child have done in the name of popularity?

"Plowman also is supposedly going to be on Tosh.0now, also. She or "she" tweeted: "OMG! SO I JUST FOUND OUT IM GOING TO BE ON TOSH.O!!! One of Daniel Tosh's agents got ahold of me and said they would love to have me and my video on their show! This is amazing. Like I never thought it would get this big. And of course I'll be going.""
Where are this child's F-ing parents? "Of course I'll be going!" ??? I'll say it for them...
