It really does seem dumb. It's just, I don't know, unimaginative and low-aspiration.

@mgscott: Parkour for those of flat features or those who lack movement?

It's the vogue thing for those whose Captain Morgan buzz has worn off.

Planking? Looks more like Plunking to me.

I can't help but notice that these look to be the same type of people that used to hang out in poetry coffee houses in the 90s. And they look like they wear turtle-neck sweaters and horn-rimmed glasses while talking about how lame it is to be a conformist.

@capguncowboy: lay off my turtle necks...

BTW, that actually sounds like 60s not 90s

Planking is so cool. It's the coolest thing EVER!!!! I was like planking and like taking pictures and like putting them on Facebook. Like everyone was saying how cool I was and like they wanted to do it too. I was all you can't plank as good as me and they were all yes we can. Then I said to them come over and we'll see...and they did. I won!!! I was the best planker!!! Even my mom said so and so did Janie's mom. She was planking on top of my plank and then my thingy started to rise and I was planking on the end of my boner with a sexy chick planking on top of me. Now tell me that's not like totally the best plank you have ever heard of or seen.

I have to say that I love to plank and if I could get paid to do it I would do it for a living for the rest of my life. Wouldn't that be cool! I could like be a professional planker, kinda like those football and basketball guys except I plank!

OK, like totally enough from me. It's time to go PLANKING!!!!!!!

I like planking. It's not supposed to be visually stunning, or demonstrative of physical skill, or stylish and hip. It's just a sardonic response to post-modern nonconformist themes.

It's also got a bit of live artistry involved. It's painting the human form as scenery - using its most taken-for-granted characteristics with a totally different perspective (think Erwin Wurm).

Did you write this post in 2009 and it just posted now? Planking has been around since 2000 but took the current name in about 2009 so it's a long way from being a new trend.

@kamikazeken: Oh my god. I'm not sure what it says about me that I think that's really funny.

In all seriousness though I think Planking is a milestone for me. It's the moment that I finally realized I've become my parents and don't get the youth of today.

Speaking of Planking. Some kids decided to spell it out by doing it at a baseball game last night. The adults couldn't figure out what the hell these crazy kids were up to.

EVERYTHING HAS A HIDDEN MEANING AND JUST BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON.THERE ARE DIFFERENT KIND OF PLANKING SUCH AS WOOD PLANKING AND SLAVE PLANKING SO WHICH ONE ARE YOU DOING? PLANKING IS A COVERING OR FLOORING CONSTRUCTED OF PLANKS SO ARE YOU PLANKING OR SLAVE PLANKING SO BLACK FOLKS GET TO KNOW THE TRUE MEANING BEHIND PLANKING. SO ARE YOU USING YOURSELVES TO CONSTRUCT A COVERING OR FLOORING?
