Last night DH was looking at his brothers facebook album from summer camp. Filling the album were TONS of pictures of people laying facedown looking like complete idiots. I guess I’m just waaaay out of the loop but apparently “Planking” is a pretty popular thing. We were dying laughing at these pictures. I called my sister and she laughed at me because I didn’t know what it was.
Are you familiar with planking? Do you plank? (FYI: I am again laughing hysterically at these people while writing this…)

I just don’t get it. My boss did it the other day, which was hilarious, just because he was so excited about it… but other than that I have never found it funny! I don’t know what it is about it where some people LOVE it and laugh so hard and others think it’s straight up dumb. I swear I’ve never heard a middle ground!

Umm is right. I thought you were talking about the exercise and I was thinking “how is that a craze at a camp?”
Then I googled and found this:

The idea is to take pictures laying straight across (like a plank) in cool locations. The problem is that there are some people who try to out do one another and end up planking in dangerous places or at high altitudes and fall and die. What a stupid trend.

DUMBEST thing i’ve ever heard of. What moron goes, “huh. I’m going to go lay down. But, I’m going to lay down on something other than my bed. In fact, I’m going to lay down on something of somebody else’s, because it’ll be cool.” Seriously. Is it any wonder this nation is fast becoming one of the least intelligent?

Oh, planking. FSIL has an album on FB dedicated to planking. At least once a day I get a picture sent to my phone from FMIL of everyone in her family. She finds it hilarious. FI’s cousin climbed the fence of the dugout at a baseball field and laid on the fence. FFIL is laying on the conveyer belt at walmart. FI’s cousin is planking diagonally on a lawnmower. FMIL is laying down on the parking lot in a handicapped parking space.
It’s gotten out of hand. But some I do find hilarious

apparently it was ‘discvoered’ in 1997 but recently a man died from planking in austrailia, that is why it became famous again

My first response was WTF!?! After I’d googled it and watched a video my response was still WTF?!?!
Edit: I’m thinking of joining the facebook group
Planking? I’d rather not be a fvckwit.
