Planking involves plankers, who lie face-down, with their arms to the side whilst having their picture taken. It is especially popular to plank in public or humourous places.
Often "planking pictures" are uploaded to facebook to bring joy to the people.
But the planking has become more than the act of lying down in front of a camera. For whatever reason, this simple act has induced a moral panic. Policemen and Politicitians are anti-planking. The Australian ranga PM is an anti-planker. She is also female.
Planking has become an idea. No policitian or policeman can tell a planker not to plank. It is the new punk movement. But more fun and planker. Haters keep hating, plankers keep planking.
Old mate 2: "hi big rocks. good weekend man. just went planking. just planked on the harbour bridge. no biggie."
Old mate 1: "you must be getting all the ladies after that dude."
Old mate 2: "ladies love a planker."
Planking is a great pastime for people who get bored easily and have friends willing to take pictures of them looking like retards. Public planking is more adventurous and is harder to pull off especially on things like: cop cars, public toilets, and in the middle of six way highways.
Planking can also be dangerous if performed: in places of frequent use, the tops of tall buildings and placed frequented by pedophiles and rapists.
