So, you’re wondering why so many people are updating their status about pretending to be a carrot or some other kind of vegetable. There are people all over posting about themselves digging holes and rolling in their garden acting like a vegetable. I read one last night, thought it was a bit odd, and thought maybe someone had been fraped but not very brutally. Then I read another, and another.
So, what is it all about?
This is the game and this is what you’ll be sent to your inbox if you happen to like or comment on someone else’s vegetable status:
Dear victim, I am sorry. I have lost at this game and now so have you! You liked or commented on my status so you must now post the following message as your status to continue the game (unless you have lost your sense of humour:) I know nobody will see my status but sometimes, when I am bored, I go into the garden, I cover myself in earth and I pretend I am a potato. (choose a new vegetable when it’s your turn to pass it on to others! You get parsnip).
If you don’t want to join in with the game just don’t take any notice of the strange status that appears in your news feed. If you do like or comment, you will be playing. If you’ve already made the mistake of liking it already but don’t want to play, you can completely ignore the inbox message you receive. But that’s not being very social so don’t be a party pooper.
