Yes, owling is the new planking. Or, if you're to believe the movement's Facebook page, it's the "evolution of planking." (Side note: Are Internet trends moving at light speed these days, or am I already a geriatric at 30?)
Personally, I'm a bigger fan of owling than planking. Mostly because it doesn't involve lying down in a dirty street or freaking out passersby who think you're dead, facedown in a public park, scarring them and their children for life. I can't believe I have an opinion on this one way or another, but such is the world we live in.

Either way, the folks at the Saint Arnold brewery are fans of owling too. So much, in fact, that they put together a Facebook album called "Owling at the brewery." In it, you'll find nearly every Saint Arnold employee -- from founder Brock Wagner to the guy who drives the forklift and clearly doesn't understand why someone is forcing him to "perch" in his vehicle -- owling.
