Devious Licks Are Taking Over TikTok AND Schools

TikTok always finds a way to leave an impact on people, except this time, it's not a dance.

As we all know by now, TikTok has taken the social media world by storm with its plethora of trends and video types; however, a more recent trend has left schools robbed — literally.

For those of you who don't know, a devious lick is essentially a student vandalizing or stealing an item from their school/college and proclaiming it to be a "devious lick" via social media. I know, very interesting concept: break the law and then admit it on the internet for the entire world to see. And just like a Netflix serial killer docuseries, people eat it up.

Oddly enough, the most popular place to "devious lick"? The bathroom.

Perhaps it's because bathrooms don't have security cameras or an authority figure monitoring them, but school bathrooms have most definitely fallen victim to the students trying to climb the TikTok popularity scale through petty crime. One of the most popular examples I've seen while scrolling through my "for you" page is the stolen hand sanitizer in the toilet.

For whatever reason, throwing the stuff you use to clean your hands in the toilet has become a great starting point for the aspiring "devious lickers". Another one I've seen pop up a few times is the entire paper towel dispenser taken from off of the wall.

I myself have witnessed a few of these licks at my own school.

Being in college, I kind of assumed that there would be less of this due to the higher stakes associated with college. I couldn't have been more wrong. The devious licking here at my school is like high school devious licking on steroids. From stealing couches from common areas to ripping room numbers off the wall, we've certainly had our fair share of this social media trend.

My friend who goes to another college even told me somebody went as far as to attempt to steal a desk from a classroom (spoiler alert: he failed miserably).

As I said before, unfortunately for those participating, this is illegal.

Stealing and vandalizing for likes and fame might seem great and all, but there are consequences for breaking the law — even if you admit it on the internet (shocker). Teens across the United States are being arrested and charged for their "devious lick", making many start to question if the laughs and shares are actually worth it.

Regardless of what happens, it will eventually die down.

Like all social media trends, it will soon become less popular and end up on the back burner of peoples' minds, likely dubbed an iconic "internet sensation" of the fall of 2021. Remember how we were all jamming to "Gangnam Style" and obsessing over duct tape purses? Exactly my point: trends are called trends for a reason, and this will die down eventually. In fact, TikTok has already taken to deleting videos involving devious licking and blocking all of the hashtags.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
