Ghetto Hikes: A Hoax? (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Looks like Ghetto Hikes is a parody account -- and an unfunny one at that. According to a just-released tweet, Men's Humor and Ghetto Hikes were registered by the same person. Runnin' Scared will try and figure out the deal.

"I HAVE A FULL TIME JOB LEADING URBAN KIDS (OF ALL RACES) ON NATURE HIKES. I SIMPLY WRITE DOWN SHIT THEY SAY," writes Mr. Cody -- who gives no other identifying info.
Some of the kids' observations?
And let's not forget:
Judging from the posts, it doesn't seem like the kids have a traditional reverence of nature a la Walden -- but they're sure-as-shit taken aback by the great outdoors, which is a step in the right direction.
Ghetto Hikes looks like it's only been around since January, but already has almost 430,000 followers. Runnin' Scared reached out to Mr. Cody about his project. We'll update if we hear back.
