Every once in a while, a weird fad pops up that manages to grab the attention of almost every single person on Earth. They normally don’t make much sense, but that doesn’t stop them from dominating pop culture and beyond. Take the Pet Rock, for example. It was literally a rock in a box, but that didn’t stop its inventor from becoming a millionaire.
The 1990s had their own share of fads that absolutely consumed people. How much time did you spend trying to keep your Tamagotchi alive? How much money did you waste on Pokemon cards? We also can’t forget Beanie Babies, the stuffed animals that grabbed the attention of multiple generations.
There have been a few trends to pop up in the past few years, but there is one in particular that has managed to dominate 2017: the fidget spinner. Despite doing nothing but spinning for an extended period of time, fidget spinners have captured the hearts and minds of everyone like nothing else. They might be most popular among kids, but older generations have hopped on the bandwagon as well, and now there’s a new version of the toy that’s only for adults: fidget spinners for your nipples.
