Planking and Owling (199th new thing).
November 10, 2011 § 2 Comments
My coworker Jeremiah was talking about the new internet craze, “coning.” Apparently it’s when a person heads through the drive-thru and orders an ice cream cone, only to take it from the sales person by grabbing the ice cream part instead of the cone. WTF? He told me it was kind of like the new batmaning, which was the new owling which was the new planking. I had heard of planking, where people lay flat, face down, on some object or floor. Some guy in Australia even died while attemptong to “plank” on his hotel balcony. This is super high level intelligent stuff.
That I had never participated in. Until Day One Hundred Ninety-Nine.
Yeah, I joined the craze, albeit it about a year later than the height of its popularity. I didn’t even post a picture anywhere (except here), so maybe it doesn’t count. But I did it; I planked and owled.
