The stupidest fucking act ever where you lay on your stomach with your hands at your sides and stretch your fingers and feet downward and then post a picture of it on facebook. Many people choose to do this across a building, car roof, the ground, on another person, or on an animal.
Dude, I'm not the only one that hates planking, Ray William Johnson does too!

An idiotic fad in which kids lay flat across a surface with arms at sides, chin up and toes pointed. Although, half of them just lay across the surface.. Then post pictures of this act on social networking sites such as facebook, thinking it makes them cool.
John: "Ayeee, look at the kid planking on the feild goal post!"

Scott: "Dude, that's the stupidest thing i've ever seen. I hope he falls."

Verb: The art of actively lying down
The objective of planking is to have a dead straight body, arms by side, palms facing inwards, toes down or pointed - to mimic a plank of wood.
*Variations are the vertical plank, the inverted plank, the hanging plank, multiple ply plank (mutliple people in one action)
"Hey let's go planking"

"Did you see that guy planking? It gave me wood"
"That girls planking is gammin, bent legs, bent body, poor form"
