3.
A new trend similar to planking in which one goes around and sticks his or her head in random ovens while a friend takes a photograph of the event. This is usually done in honor of the late poet Sylvia Plath who famously committed suicide by sticking her head in an oven. Hipsters do this to be ironic.
"Pssh planking was so last summer. Plathing is way more ironic and now!"- Some stupid hipster
