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.

Confused?

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:

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