Forget planking, milking is the next big thing


Thought the internet trend of planking was pointless? Students have now taken to 'milking' - and it's not leaving a sour taste.

The simple act of 'milking' simply involves someone pouring milk over your own head and having the moment filmed to share with all on YouTube.

The previous fad of 'planking' which went viral required partakers to lie down imitating a wooden plank in unusual locations, and sharing the pic.

Apparently a man died last year after plunging to his death following a planking attempt on a balcony in Australia.

So to perspective milkers, be careful before joining in.

What do you think about the new fad - excreamly funny or udderly pointless?
