September 10, 2011 Owling

Owling is the art of crouching, like an owl, in interesting places. Like planking, someone takes a picture and you post it on the internet.

Like this:

This is said to be the first owling image:



This is Allison Smith. She is believed to be the first example of owling. She says she posed for the photo and, as a joke, posted it on Facebook with the phrase "Owling?"

Now, there is an owling Facebook page.

All in all, I believe there will howls of laughter when they hole themselves in the ground like an awl.

I see it says farts under flock of seagulls boy's butt... is this a more complicated meme or just happenstance?

When are we going to see a craze for Spiking -that is balancing on one's erect penis in unusual places?

One is all you need. (NSFW language)

find it cooler that planking, where you look plain ridiculous, sometimes facing mud/ground/dirt...

The girl picture reminds me of birdy ...

Yes! It is very reminiscent of Birdy.

According to the Daily Mail, both Planking and Owling have been ousted from the top spot by the craze 'Batmanning'


Personally, I think the Owling pics are much nicer. Of the three that's the one that has the most artistic appeal to me.

Look how flushed their chests and faces are. Wonder if that's blood pooling there, or if they just happen to get sunburned while wearing life vests.

They removed their wifebeaters for the sake of the photo op.



Clodfobble  Friday Sep 16 08:44 AM

A friend of my mom's was hanging that way off a piece of playground equipment to entertain his young daughter. He slipped off, landed on his neck, and became paralyzed.

Makes planking on a cliff edge seem downright safe.

It would have been totally hilarious if those guys had done the YMCA while hanging upside down!

Or even O-H-I-O!

Excuse me for asking: Who is Birdy?


Sundae  Friday Sep 16 10:46 AM

I am Birdy!

Oh, no, sorry.
I am Spartacus.



infinite monkey  Friday Sep 16 11:14 AM

Bye Bye Birdy (sic)
