Internet fad where an individual lies face down with their arms by their side as straight as possible on random or public places while someone takes a picture. Example of places: fridge, rail, tables, statues, ect.

Planking is the act of lying down, completely straight and stiff, in an absurd or random place and taking a photo.

When performing a Plank:

1: You must always lay face down, ensuring your face remains expressionless for the duration of the Plank.

2: Your legs must remain straight, and together with toes pointed.

3: Your arms must be placed by your side, held straight and fingers pointed.

4: You must make it known that you are Planking. Saying 'I am Planking' usually get this across. Sternly announcing it will ensure a good result.

5: Your safety should always be considered. Properly thought through Planking procedures should always go to plan. Never put your self at undue risk, unless you are a seasoned Planker.

6: First Aid should never be far away. Ice, Bandaids, Cast Plaster, needle and thread, emotional support and a quick escape route need to be on hand.

7: Every Plank that is captured must be named. Etc, "Cow Plank", "Letterbox Plank"
