The sad truth for ridiculous Web memes is that they have remarkably poor shelf lives. So, farewell planking.
Deciding that striking a “light as a feather, stiff as a board” pose in public, photographing it and posting it on the Web is old news, some Internet denizens have moved on.
Now, it’s all about squatting, arms pressed toward the ground and eyes locked in a wise, faraway gaze. You know … like an owl.
If it all seems sort of ludicrous, well, that’s kind of the point.
