Internet trends are a funny thing.
From charity trends like the Ice Bucket challenge and the #NoMakeupSelfie, to the pop culture ones like the Kylie Jenner lip challenge… it seems like once a topic is 'trending', many of us will succumb to it.
However, this latest one is probably the most stupid we've seen in a while.
A meme started floating around about two weeks ago, which gave you instructions on how to break your thumb ligament.
Why someone would want to do this – for absolutely no reason whatsoever – we don't know, but lo and behold, people actually started to break their thumbs.
And then tweeted about it:
