Planking? Are You Doing It?


#1

Are you "Planking?"

"The phenomenon of planking involves lying face down in a public place - the stranger the better - and posting photos on social networking sites such as Facebook. Aficionados lie expressionless with a straight body, hands by their sides and toes pointing into the ground."

Basically you lay face down in random places and take pictures. Heres another write up:

Its probably the dumbest, lamest, gayest, most hilarious thing ever. I dont know why its so funny but it is.

Post your awesome planking pictures here!

Once I heard about this from a younger coworker I think I asked three times "No, really, is it just that?"

I heard a guy in Australia already died trying to do one on his 7th floor balcony.

Sounds like some of that weird David Blain performance art crap.

yeah it sounds pretty dumb... but it surprisingly funny.

I was in a "plank-off" with my buddy on saturday via facebook. So dumb..... yet also hilarious.

This is all going to end in tears. I can feel it.

Does lying face down in a pool of your own vomit outside your local pub count? I've been doing this for years.

It's called the 'lying down game' over here. Couple of friends got into trouble once for doing it at an airport

Reminds me of the "head in the fridge" thing, from a couple months ago.
