Much to our surprise, horsemaning, also known as fake beheading, isn’t anything new. In fact, it’s been around for almost eighty years! Horsemaning got it’s start in the 1920’s as a popular way to take photos. Looks like those ’20s folk knew how to have a good laugh!

How to engage in “horsemaning” is easy. First, you need two people. One person lays diagonally across something (a bench, a bed, a wall, get creative!) and hangs their head over the side so it’s no longer visible. Another person then stands behind the bench/bed/wall/etc and rests their chin upon it. Facial expressions and hand placements are up to you, but we find that the ones where the “beheaded body” has it’s hand on a smiling head are the funniest versions of the horsemaning photo.
