TikTok has never been a platform bereft of ill-advised trends, but there's something about this year that seems to be bringing out the worst in some of its users.
Because while previous trends have put impulsive users at risk of endangering their own health and safety, the most recent sensations gripping the platform seem to encourage spreading the destruction outward.
By now, there's a good chance that you've heard about the widespread theft of major school resources and fixtures done in the name of fulfilling the "devious lick" trend.
But while that wave of mischief caused enough real-world issues that TikTok itself has been cracking down on it, it seems that another trending nuisance has been lurking around the world's doorsteps while these "licks" grab all the headlines.
And even though it hasn't proved quite as destructive as of yet, victims of the trend have likely found it just as annoying.
