A new challenge is circulating the web, where you rip apart a fruit with your bare hands! 

It's called the "Super Sage Apple Challenge", and a UFC introduced the concept.  Sage Northcutt started it all with a post to his Twitter account.

"Hey guys, who can rip an apple apart?  #SuperSage so I can see it."

Since posting the video, it's become an online sensation, with lots of regular people out there posting their videos of their own apple carnage.

So we here at Fox 4 rose to the challenge.  We asked our own Malcolm Johnson, who was co-hosting Fox 4 Morning News today, to try it live on the air -- totally unrehearsed!
