Horsemanning , noun;
1. Fake beheading for a photo-op
1920's Horsemanning (source)
These days there's a fad called planking that involves people laying face down in a strange place, taking a picture, and posting it online. The origins of this behavior are somewhat disputed, but it's safe to say that it's a relatively new activity (according to Wikipedia it was invented in either 1994 or 2000).

Horsemanning, on the other hand, is a very similar type of activity but it dates to the 1920's. According to it's 'official' website, horsemanning derives its name from the Headless Horseman character in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
