(Newser) – Forget planking, cone-ing, and owling: Horsemaning is the new trend when it comes to bizarre photo opportunities. Horsemaning, first made popular in the 1920s, is basically taking a picture where it appears you have been beheaded. The term comes from the "Headless Horseman," reports the International Business Times, noting that it can also be called "fake beheading" and include a second person's head in the picture, creating the illusion of decapitation.
