I was having major difficulty coming up with a topic to write about, but after working with my muse I came to this topic. It's about the worlds (stupidest?) new obsession, Planking. Now if you have never heard of this new trend I suggest you leave now before you heart mind and sole (on your left shoe) are forever scared with the irremovable stain of mass human stupidity.

Like anything truly moronic planking appears to have been invented by some bored British gentleman, and then borught to full scale fame in Australia.

I would assume in a country where mutant-duck-beavers with poisonous spurs are the least of your worries, you wouldn't have so much free time. I apparently assumed incorrectly.
Planking is one of the greatest feats of combining drunken stupidity with internet meme's, (at least one of the greatest feats that won't result in informing all your future neighbors that you moved in down the street).
Because I am a lazy writer I have copy/pasted this entry for wikipedia to explain what planking is, incase you ignored my warning and ventured this far into the article.
The lying down game (also known as planking,[1] or face downs) is an activity, popular in various parts of the world, 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.[2] Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play.[2] The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved.[3] 

Now I remind you that the above is not one of my jokes, because honestly I couldn't come up with something that stupid, and trust me I have tried and I have come up with some stupid things.

Their have been some claims that this "game" has been observed in the United States, and this my friends in my new #1 culprit for the economic woes, follow closely by Facebook and anything that has spewed from the mouth of Rihanna.

So Planking is taking over the world, why exactly this position is the favored is beyond me, and why anyone finds this funny will forever confuse me, however, we are talking about the British and where humour is concerned, they are somewhat lacking. 

If it is any concern the most popular results for celebrities plankers are Flavor Flav and Justin Bieber, so theirs that. If you see anyone at any time participating in the game of plank you should promptly walk up and relieve them of any dignity by kicking them squarely in the jaw, according to doctors this will instantly render them aware of themselves and they will cease the planing activities, they may also attempt to assault you, which is of course most easily dealt with by calmly snickering and explaining to them that their is blood evacuating from their orifices.

In conclusion here is me planking. Old Scoo!
Yes! I know this makes me part of the problem! But I'll tell you my carpet sure smells fresh!



  2. Micky...absolute perfection. I am now happy I didn't go with my first form of assault as everyone would have assumed I stole it from this video. But non-the-less Hysterical
