I'm not too ashamed to adopt and try my hand the latest moronic Internet meme that comes along. (Not sure what a "meme" is? Check out what wikipedia has to say about it.) And the latest meme is Horsemanning!

I've been known to plank a bit at the office, have created a music video or two, and have even subjected Mel to be a Lolcat and "stuff on my cat" participant, but my obsession goes back to before last Friday and even way before Chocolate Rain was even a brown cloudy day. Does anyone remember Mikey from "Hello my future girlfriend?" I do.

Today, thanks to my coworker Mok-Yi, I learned of the this meme called horemanning that I simply couldn't pass up an opportunity to participate in.

Horsemanning (or sometimes Horse-Manning or Horsemaning) is actually a method or style of photography that grew in popularity back in the 1920s. I'm a sucker for anything historic, and this meme started almost 80 years before the World Wide Web was even a thing. Zoinks! Here's one of the originals.

We had a pizza party at work today. What better time to kick off my first attempt as this meme? My coworker, Doug, and I situated ourselves and Mok-Yi snapped a few photos. As you already saw above, here's our end result of our horsemanning attempt. We hope you enjoy.

If you want to learn more about this slightly odd approach to photography and attempt at Internet conformance through odd activity, you can read more about it a horsemanning.com. And, if you're inspired to participate, you can upload your creation to their website. Or, if you're anything like my wife, you can shake your head in disbelief at my perpetual immaturity.
