A hoax post about a “competitive barefoot runner” complaining about acorns on the sidewalks in Minneapolis went viral.
The post originally appeared in the private “I Love NE Minneapolis” Facebook group.
Now, everyone in the group is sharing acorn memes.
It will never be the same.
A private Facebook group dedicated to local life in Minneapolis has been rocked (acorned?) after a troll post from a “competitive barefoot runner” complaining about acorns on the sidewalk went viral.
Eric Curtis — who, to be fair, is a student at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis — wrote the fake post in the “I Love NE Minneapolis” group, complaining that acorns littering the sidewalk made his barefoot competitive running training difficult,. His post asked that people clear acorns from the sidewalks in front of their homes.
