Well, lots of people in China seem to be thinking it, because now they’re all getting around with tiny bean sprouts coming out of their heads. The Seedling Emoji is seriously going off right now.
I can’t quite seem to locate the exact origin of this adorable new trend, but it’s certainly a fresh take on the hair clip phenomenon of the 90s. It’s like we’ve used up all of the Cute Things that can be turned into fashions, and butterflies and love hearts are now the gutter trash of pop culture.
I just had a quick search on eBay and for a mere BUCK you can nab one of these li’l sprouts for your own head. Seriously, why wouldn’t you jump on board?
The craze is so big that tourists in China are even buying bean sprouts as souvenirs now.

The craze is so big that people are superimposing bean sprouts onto their heads if they don’t physically own them.

LOOK AT THIS BABY BEAN SPROUT CLIP. IT’S SO SMALL. IT’S A BLOODY INFANT. IT’S PRACTICALLY STILL INSIDE THE BEAN’S WOMB.

Up your bean sprout hair game with double the sprouts.
But be careful — you can go overboard with these.
It doesn’t matter if you have long hair or short: all are welcome in the bean sprout hair clip club.
EVEN CATS ARE WELCOME.
