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.
