“Planking” is, as far as I can tell, a phenomenon spawned by hipsters and the internet. Do a quick Google image search and you’ll get the idea… one lies face down in a rigid plank on an object, arms to the side. It’s similar to a concept that all of my friends will be familiar with called “Palms Up” which was developed by @Le_Fronk last spring through the excessive consumption of alcohol and the absence of a friends couch to sleep on (or the presence of mind to locate one). The primary difference between the 2 is that Planking is an activity that one does, while Palms Up is a repercussion of an activity (drinking a shit load of booze).
As the title of this post indicates Planking is funny as hell, for no reason at all. The above photo is of my good friend Blair (sOn?), one of the funniest AND strangest dudes out, with @DatBoyChadnay and Echo giving the assist. If you don’t think it’s hilarious then fuck you. Photo credit to @KelseyChan, she’s a gem through and through.
Hit the jump for a few more photos of these goons Planking, some other funny Planks, and monumental Plankings of Stonehenge and The Taj Mahal.
