The FAIL Whale has nothing on the white whale

Just about everyone these days has some idea of what the term FAIL whale means when it comes up in conversation. It is one of those rare terms that while meant for something specific, in the case Twitter crashing, but has gone on to mean a whole new nomenclature when it comes to things that have failed in one fashion or another.

In Russia however the FAIL whale is being supplanted by a new movement called Whale Tailing and it is spreading like wildfire among the Russian social networks. The basic idea as you can see from the picture is when a woman lying down thrusts her ass up in the air and then takes a picture. I'm not sure exactly what is driving this along considering it is women doing this, which consider the term ‘plumber crack' maybe it's a good thing only women are behind this newest meme.
