I now understand Courtney's signature photo better!

Apparently he went "planking" this weekend in Toronto. Either I'm lame to not have heard of this "fad" or it's not that popular around here yet lol

Now that I understand what planking is, the photo is much funnier

Well, you learn something new everyday Must not be that popular in Canada yet. I am certainly not capable of that stunt in this stage.

The news crew where I live posted all of their planking photos on their facebook. I just don't understand the fad at all!

I didn't know what it was. But I don't get it even now that I know. Strange thing to do.

I agree with Jess. I read it, but still don't really get it. You just lay face down with your arms at your sides? Anywhere? What is the point?? Hmmm . . . . . I think perhaps some people have too much idle time on their hands. LOL

I don't get it either. I just decided to search on something that's popular then add the word "fail" to it and this was the picture I found.

That essentially is the idea it seems Jenny. But apparently the funnier or more interesting the place the better. If you search it in Google images you can find some.

Some people do have too much idle time and I am definitely not one of them!

I would have to dig a hole first, for my belly. Otherwise, there is NO way I can lay on my stomach. I did see a pic of someone "planking" on a cop car. He got arrested. Tee hee

I LOL'd the first time I saw the pic. I have seen several of my facebook friends post "planking" pics so I knew what it was. I don't "get it" either, but some of them are pretty funny.

I have a 14yr old son. Need I say more? LOL We were at the grocery store last week and he was planking on my cart. lol His hands on the push bar, the rest of him straight out like a ... yep you guessed it, like a plank. One think I have to say about the kids around here that do it. You have to have a lot of strength and muscle control to be able to pull off that little stunt! But agreed. Very, very odd. lol
