Planking

This just seems like the silliest thing to me, but some people are in to it. After seeing the Dwight Howard pics of him planking on airplanes and golf carts I was just wondering what everybody else thought about it. Any plankers out there??

To me it's pretty funny. But

To me it's pretty funny. But I heard people in Australia take it really seriously like an extreme sport. They try to plank on really high stuff like balconies and billboards, and I heard somebody died doing it.

Planking was from slavery.

Planking was from slavery. They made Slaves do it on the boat.

Anyway, it's funny, but stupid at the same time.

That's exactly what it is. It looks silly when folks do it, but that literally is what planking is.

Ok guys let me clear up the history of planking.

It was invented by a footballer David Williams around March or April I think. It totally got out of hand with news presenters planking on the news desks and even one guy planking on a cop car (was arrested by the way). Also one guy died from falling 8 stories when planking on a balcony and another died while planking on a moving car. Now it is frowned upon and is 'illegal' in schools.

yes it was

considering that I live in Australia, I know whats going on. Im not doubting that there was some sort of slavery thing associated with planking but dont you think its funny that people are starting to plank now after watching us Aussies do it.

Do memes consult with you

Do memes consult with you before continuing? Are cutting-edge Facebook trends as new as your old bathwater? Planking is outdated. As reported by the Washington Post, things like coning and forking tried to make it large, but only owling has the wings to remain aloft. Owling: Because planking is crusty old. Planking is a humorous public social exercise in which a human photo or video subjects lie down in surprising locations like stiff wooden planks for the sake of sharing the event on Facebook. Perhaps planking’s time had come, suggests the Washington Post.
