Ankle SCARVES are winding everyone up on the Internet today
Yes, you read that right.
Ankle scarves. Scarves that you put around your ankles. Genius. But, not really. It's all a big joke.
Well, a German satire site, Der Postillon, decided to come up with the fake trend to wind its readers up.
The 'joke' article read: "Long trousers are worn only by grandmothers and grandpas. But after I've had chilblains twice this year and my doctor warned me I could lose my ankles, I'll just wear those shawls for safety's sake."
A lot of people didn't cop onto the joke (hello, they would be the most impractical things in the world), and took to Twitter to vent:
JUST WEAR SOCKS AND YOU WON'T TRIP OVER YOUR DANG-'OL "ANKLE SCARVES."
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. https://t.co/CVcEBACoG6

Trying to figure out which is less practical: the nose warmer or ankle scarves ?

Yeah, people were not impressed. Thank God it's a joke... although someone will probably create them soon enough *eye roll*.
