Manny Pacquiao may not have won his fourth fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, but he can take comfort in the idea that his defeat has sparked a new meme.

Since Pacquiao was knocked out in the sixth round, Instagram users have been uploading pics of themselves mimicking the boxer’s prone body.

The images are not unlike Planking, a similar trend of people lying on things and mimicking wooden boards.

Unlike the rigid posture needed to maintain the plank, people who want to try Mannying can do it anywhere with a floor as long as they go limp. 

Planking has spurred several other popular variations of people striking humorous poses in everyday settings.

Notable offshoots include Owling, Teapotting, Batmanning, and Horsemanning.

Pacquiao isn’t even the first athlete to start a new version of the meme.

In 2011, Instagram users began Tebowing to copy New York Jet’s quarterback Tim Tebow’s practice of getting on one knee, putting his head in his arm, and praying.

Football players Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady, and Robert Griffin each spawned similar copycats of their own distinctive poses.

Only time will tell if Mannying is as popular.
