Forget Planking, Try Owling Looks ... fun? By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Jul 13, 2011 11:49 AM CDT Updated Jul 17, 2011 6:28 AM CDT 37 comments Comments Owling. (Facebook) (Newser) – Planking is so over. The bizarre Facebook trend (blamed in the death of a man in May) of taking a picture while you're lying face down in a weird location has been replaced with "owling." Owling, as the Washington Post explains, is the act of taking a picture while crouching in an owl-like posture. Also, presumably, while in a strange location. And of course, the photo must be shared—there's already a Facebook page for owling. Click for even more odd owling pictures.
