In case you’ve been living under a rock the past few months, the newest craze is “planking”. Everyone is doing it. Teenagers, grown ups, celebrity’s and athletes.
Planking is defined as:
an activity consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game. Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play. The term planking refers to mimicking a wooden plank.
Things like cars, playground equipment, fences, water fountains or anything you can think of are being planked as we speak.
