The bizarre internet craze of ‘planking’ is set to lose its cult online status to the increasingly popular trend of ‘owling’. Hundreds of young people in America, Australia and now, Britain, have taken up the new ‘owling’ craze.



It consists of nothing more taxing than crouching on one's haunches and staring into the middle distance, like an owl.

Participants then take photos of themselves and post them on Facebook or on other social networking sites.

Extra kudos is earned for those who do it in unusual situations.

The trend is a development of the popular craze of ‘planking’ in which people would take pictures of themselves lying face down in strange locations.

However, in recent months ‘planking’ has become increasingly mainstream - and thus less popular on the trend-conscious internet.
