Earlier this month, a writer from the hit TV show "Scrubs" posted about a new produce prank on Twitter that's eliciting peels of laughter from the internet — and creeping out a lot of people.

Kevin Biegel divulged his new favorite (and rather devious) pastime to his followers on July 5. (We're totally holding onto this for April Fool's Day, by the way.)

One tweeter commented onto Biegel's tweet at the very moment it had 6,666 retweets.
