After planking and owling, horsemaning becomes latest internet craze

Tired of planking? Think owling just isn’t funny enough? Perhaps you should try horsemaning, which is being excitably talked up as the next big internet craze.

Horsemaning involves taking a photo where it appears that you have been beheaded. The name ‘horsemaning’ comes from the legend of the Headless Horseman, and is fast spreading online as the way of making your friends on Facebook believe that you have been beheaded.

So is horsemaning going to become the next planking, a bizarrely popular meme that spreads like wildfire? Or is it going to become the next owling, written about as the next planking before pretty much stopping? Or is it just a massive waste of time? Possibly all of these things and more.
