The latest Internet craze: Porting

A sign directs British 'booze cruisers' towards a wine warehouse near Calais ferry port on November 13, 2006 in Calais, France.

You've heard about planking -- Where people act like a plank, and put the photos or video online.

There's also owling -- where you act like an owl.

Or my favorite: coning -- where you go to a drive-thru restaurant and order an ice cream cone, and then grab it by the ice cream.

Well, now there is "porting," where you dress up in a suit and then pour a bottle of port over your head.
