Viral trends like this make me wish people would go back to swallowing Tide Pods.  Or licking ice cream.  That was a good time, wasn’t it?

For some reason, the latest viral trend is . . . stapling pieces of bread to trees.  There’s even an entire community devoted to the trend on Reddit . . . with more than 200,000 members.

So why are people doing it?  No one seems to have a good answer.
