Planking is a simple yet effective procedure.

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' will 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.

6/ Every Plank that is captured must be named.

The definition from the 1970's. To place a board, between two points off the ground, in order to defecate. This is usually done to evoke terror in the unsuspecting as it was often done between buildings & high up enough to not be noticed until it was too late.
Friday night Bill & Ehud hung out on the roof top getting drunk, smoking, & scheming. When they had to take a dump they walked out on the board between roof tops & planked an unsuspecting crowd walking by. They were lucky to slip away in the darkness because people couldn't have been too happy about the planking they received from ten stories up.
