Ridiculous Trends of 2017

2017 brought the world some mixed emotions: people have powerful feelings about if 2017 was actually a good year or not. Despite the good things that happened in 2017 (like April the giraffe having her baby) the year still help some ridiculous social trends.

  1. Rainbow and Unicorn EVERYTHING

I don’t know how many times I scrolled through Instagram’s discover page and saw rainbow doughnuts and bagels or Starbuck’s Unicorn Frappuccino. Do you know what is one of those? According to Starbucks, it is: ice, milk, crème, whipped cream, mango syrup, blue drizzle, and blue and pink powder. I know its pink Starbucks but what is it?!

  1. Pokemon GO

This craze did eventually die down but with Harry Potter Go officially in the works I have a feeling a similar fad will take over, and with much more gusto.

  1. Facebook Stories

I let it slide when Instagram decided they needed to have stories but I am still very angry about Facebook stories, and I will never let it go.

  1. Salt Bae

Remember him? That guy who got ridiculously famous for sprinkling salt on his steak? He has over 20 million followers on Instagram now. Sometimes I wonder why I’m even in college because eventually, I am going to do something that I will become famous for.

  1. Cash Me Outside

We all made her famous, and we should feel horrible about that

  1. That Blinking Guy

He’s just blinking…

  1. The Apple Glitch

Remember when we couldn’t type the letter “I” for a few days, and the world lost their mind

  1. Male Rompers

As a female, I don’t even like wearing rompers. Going to the bathroom in them is just awful. We should just ban them all together.

  1. Fidget Spinners

I know they have some benefits to them and they are super addicting, but they are bothersome, and now no one cares about them.

  1. Eating Tide Pods

Natural selection… do your thing
