We have all either planked, been party to someone planking, or at least stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. But planking is now old school, child’s play, yesterday. If you are wanting to make a name for yourself, then you got to be new and innovative. Today it’s Owling.
Owling is the act of “squatting, arms pressed toward the ground and eyes locked in a wise, faraway gaze. You know … like an owl.”
However, if Owling is not your cup of tea, you can always resort to:
• Coning: The act of buying an ice cream cone at a fast-food drive-through, then grabbing a handful of the ice cream, not the cone, when picking it up.
• Toothpicking: Posing on one’s head, straight up and down. A sort of vertical answer to planking’s horizontal form.
• Leisure diving: Posing for a photo in midair while diving into a pool, while attempting to look as casual about the experience as possible.
Thanks to David K for brightening my day!
