Move Over Kids: The Viral Cheese Challenge Has Now Hit Dogs -- Literally

The latest viral challenge -- throwing a slice of cheese in an unexpecting youngster's face -- has evolved to target man's best friend.

The bizarre trend all started when Twitter user @UncleHxlmes uploaded a video with the caption, "just cheesed my lil brother".

The footage -- which has since been deleted -- showed him creeping up to the little dude and flinging a square slice what looks to be prepackaged cheese in his confused, chubby face.

Soon, people all around the world had taken up the #cheesechallenge and poor, trusting infants everywhere started copping slices from all directions.

Challenge. Accepted.

Nothing gets past this doggo.

Even cats aren't safe from a wayward slice of Swiss.

Look, we're not here to judge but throwing cheese at your babies -- human, furry or otherwise -- is probably not the best idea.

Plus, why waste a perfectly good slice when there are cheese toasties waiting to be made?
