Wait, Owling is a real thing? Is that when you motorboat a Hooters waitress?" A friend of mine posted this, and was completely serious.
If I have you confused already allow me to show you what the hell I'm talking about. This is owling courtesy of the one and only Hilary Duff, star of the once popular tween sitcom, Lizzie McGuire:

Delving deeper into the history of owling, it is pretty apparent that it is a response to "planking." Here I am using response to actually mean "totally copying." If you are entirely uniformed, planking is basically laying stomach down, flat as a board, photographing it and also posting it Facebook for all those friends who care so much about your exploits. It was really cool for awhile.

Mean Girls pretty much sums up exactly how I feel about owling:
So please stop trying to make owling happen, it's not going to happen. Besides, the leisure dive is way cooler. And by cooler I actually mean "get over it and take a nice photo that mom can put above the damn fireplace."
