Are You A Planker?

By definition, planking is “the act of lying face down with arms to the sides of the body, in unusual public spaces and photographing it.”

That, seemingly simple and non-eventful action is the latest craze, fad, sensation, whatever, that seems to be sweeping not only the country here in the U.S.A. but globally as well.

Who’s doing it? After seeing some photos and videos a few weeks ago I would have said that it was only the geeks of the world (and yes I count myself in that category, so that’s not a knock on the Geek Nation). But lately I’ve been seeing folks from all walks of life getting their plank on !!

What do you think? Are you a Planker? If so share your video and pictures with our readers.
