November

The latest Internet craze known as the "Mannequin Challenge" has spread across Tampa Bay, with people remaining frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded.

We've found mannequins at "work" at Tampa International Airport and Busch Gardens. On Nov. 9, Tampa threw down the gauntlet challenging Orlando and St. Petersburg to match their frozen scene on Tampa's River Walk with various city departments -- including a completely still police dog -- caught in mid-movement.

Orlando stepped up, as did St. Petersburg, with a pretty funny scene spoiler by the mayor. Like all pointless memes, it will be dying out soon now that the squares have discovered it, but it's still a pretty joyful one.
