PHOTOS: Is stocking the new planking?
Move over, planking. Adios, owling. Look out, leisure diving. Here comes stocking.
Thanks to novelty tumblr Stocking Is The New Planking, we are now consumed by photos of people who are mimicking stock photos. Yes, that’s right– photos of people who want to appear exactly the same as people in other photos.
We are haunted by the word “why.” Why are people doing this– what is the point to it all? However, more pressing is the question: Why do we keep looking at it? Why does stocking make us chuckle aloud?
We may never know.
Just as amusing as the two photos side by side, are the captions that go along with them.
“Disheveled groggy guy with fake sleepy gaze lies around in bed.”
“Though uncertain of decision to be photographed on toilet, young man in red sneakers reads document.”
“By holding water bottle and yoga mat, model couple radiates health and wellness.”
Anyone who has ever had to search through stock images can appreciate these satirical little blurbs. That being said, humans are such peculiar creatures, aren’t we? See for yourselves.
Would go ever go stocking?
