Nebraska fan loses bet, eats soap

I've never had the honor of getting my mouth washed out with soap.  It's not that I didn't swear a lot as a child, I swore like a sailor, it's just that I made sure not to do it in front of my parents.  Though even if I had, I'm not sure either of them would have stuffed a bar of Ivory down my throat as much as they'd just tell me not to do it.

My parents were forgiving folk, which can't be said of Texas fans it seems.  There was a bet between a Texas fan and a Nebraska fan over last weekends game that called for the loser to either pay the other $200, or eat a bar of soap.  Upon seeing his team lose, Johnny Nebraska chose to go the bar of soap route.  Thankfully people recorded the whole thing so that we could enjoy his incredibly clean embarrassment.

You can really taste the lye!

Nebraska fan loses bet, eats soap

This would have been much more amusing if it were a turd. Not that the soap bit isn't amusing. However, I think if it were a turd I'd allow one condiment, Tabasco sauce!

Bon Apetite!

Nebraska fan loses bet, eats soap

There are many more terms to the bet -- please see below:

· Rules:
o The entire bar of soap is to be eaten
o The loser must provide the bar of his choosing as long as it is regulation (no small shells or tiny bars)
o The bar of soap is to be eaten without additional condiments…i.e. ketchup, mustard, mayo
o Loser can drink whatever they want with the soap, however, there is no soap swallowing. Beverage can only wash it down.
o Loser can eat the bar of soap how he wants – fork and knife, cut into slivers, large bites, etc
o If the loser gets sick, the bet continues. You can get sick as many times needed until the bar is finished
o If any questions arise or judgments needed, I will give an unbiased ruling. This will be the final ruling.

· Failure to Finish:
o Loser must pay winner $200, wear the opposing team’s football apparel every Saturday no matter where they are or what they are doing for the rest of the football season (even if they are at their home stadium watching their team play), and will be slapped by the winner at any time the winner would like (i.e. slapbet)
o IF the loser MUST go to the hospital before finishing, then the above clause is null and void

If it was just $200, I think he would've gone that route. Instead, there was also a lot of team pride on the line, and I commend Bed for following through with the original bet.
