The latest Internet craze: Porting

Jeremy Hobson Dec 10, 2012

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.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you.
