to act as a plank.

1. lay facedown and be still as a plank.
2. keep your arms straight.
3. keep your legs straight.
4. get your friend to take a picture
5. upload to facebook.

ps. the most daring planks are the best. E.g. one that would be hard to do, something that would get you into trouble. like a police car....
sam: hey, remember that planking last night?
bill: yeah we went some gutsy places last night.
