For those of you who participated in the thread on Planking there is apparently a new craze. Now people like a new ridiculous pose called “Owling.”
If you don’t want to follow the link this pic is self-explanatory.

I KNOW. Isn’t it AWFUL?
I suggest the next big fad be “Bricking”. Wherein you throw a brick at anyone you find Owling.

So dumb!!! How about this new craze…”leisure diving”. Take a dive off a high dive and look like you’re doing something leisurely in mid-air. These gems below are just relaxing, but if you google it you can see people drinking beer, talking on the phone, etc.

@bebefly: BAAHAHAHHAA. I hope this fad catches on.
I didn’t understand planking and I don’t understand this either.
Again I say… W.T.F.??

Thought you ladies would appreciate it. I still can’t wrap my head around any of this…
@bebefly: Considering how many bees there are you may just start a new fad!
@MademoiselleL: That’s weird too. That photo kind of reminds me of the ones where people in large groups try to jump in the air at the same time. At least synchronizing the dive would yield some sense of accomplishment I guess.

OMG you girls are sooo funny. Thank you I really needed that laugh! Fads these days are so dumb. It a was of time….and seriously do they really think they look cool???? To me seeing all the picture of these stuff on the internet is just like the radio playing the new cool song a thousand times a day….and by the end of the day I perfer to not see or hear any of these stupid things!

I actually like owling, while I hate planking. Maybe it’s because I just love owls.

Although I would never try it… The picture of the leisure divers looks funny! Definitely made me laugh!

I have to laugh at all this because my grad school class (yes, a bunch of adults) has been obsessed with these fads…partly as a joke, yet we have many pictures of people planking, some of people owling and we just found out about the leisure diving yesterday so I look forward to see what they come up with.

@MademoiselleL: LOL I totally thought this thread was going to be about leisure diving and was disappointed when it wasn’t. Planking and owling make you look like you’re not right in the head, but some of the leisure dives I’ve seen are downright impressive, and are actually amusing IMHO.

The girl who’s “owling” has a really uncomfortable look on her face. Combined with the position, it just kind of looks like she’s taking dump… You would have to pay me a ton of money to do that, lol.
The leisure diving is pretty cool, though :).
