Note: The infamous Triple-dog-dare is infamous for the sole reason that you cannot back down from it--without exception! An issued triple-dog-dare has no counteraction and must be implemented and/or carried out.
Ever seen the movie "A Christmas Carol"? Enough said.
Rodney: I dare
you to watch C-Span
for two consecutive hours!
Basil: Well, I double-dare
you to watch C-Span for two consecutive hours!
Rodney: Well, I triple-dog-dare you to watch C-Span for two consecutive hours!
you can't go back on a triple dog dare
i triple dog dare you to punch that dog. you can't go back on a triple-dog dare.
It is the ultimate dare. It's for when a person rejects a regular dare, AND a double dog dare. It is a dare that you HAVE to do under any circumstances. If you don't do it you look like a weakling or a chicken.
I triple dog dared her to run around the house completely naked. She chickened out and to this day we don't let her live it down.
