I stumbled upon this video of a new Meme that appears to be gaining momentum – milking. Editors at the Daily Mail announce this could be the new "planking."

The act of “milking” implies pouring milk on your head in a public place, while catching yourself on tape. It's not exactly complex, but it's quite funny, and it appears students at Newcastle and Oxford, in the UK, have caught on to the trend.

"We were just in our kitchen talking about doing it outside Starbucks in Jesmond and thought it would be really funny.

"We did that, uploaded the video to Facebook and got a load of likes. So then we thought "why not just make a video?," Tom Morris, the 22-year-old "father" of milking, says.
