While Rains was unsure why these accidents continue to happen, the Reddit group's top user Rob "gallowboob" Allam attributes its viral success to driver impatience. The site's forum, known as r/omaharock, has hundreds of followers discussing news articles of the boulder's new found fame and related memes, like one illustration of the rock inspired by President Obama's "Hope" poster.

"The beauty here is that 99% of the cars that got stuck on it have the exact same 'pose' in the photos, and it's just comedy at the expense of people's laziness and lack of attention, thinking they are smarter than... a rock."

A Facebook group called "The W Maple Omaha Rock" was started on October 21. The group, which has named the boulder "Rocko," has more than 20,000 followers who have populated it with memes and selfies taken with it.

One person who posed with the rock was Caitrin Shirazi, who works in event planning and entertainment.

Shirazi donned a mermaid outfit for her photo after seeing a Facebook post looking to make a "Little Mermaid" inspired poster shoot. Photographer Courtney Smith took the photos.

"I think there are a number of reasons why this rock, and the situation around it, are gaining so much traction. First, and foremost, it's hilarious," Shirazi told CNN through Facebook.

"The whole point of the boulder is to make the curb it sits on more visible, so people stop running it over. You see big rocks that serve the same purpose all over town. For some reason, the people who frequent this area just can't seem to get it."
