Planking or the lying down game is an activity consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the internet is an integral part of the game.
This is not to be confused with Plankton, the villain from Spongebob Squarepants.
Oh, Plankton, always trying to steal a krabby pattie.
The term 'planking' originated in Australia and has taken over there and in New Zealand and now halfway around the world in America. Just see for yourself.

And now...Baby Planking
Planking will probably be gone before we manage to include it in a story but still...it may be the most hilarious fad yet, next to wearing your pants belted around your thighs.
'Cause that's never getting old.
