My best planking, so far. Photo taken by Kevin, July 22

Twas Monday (July 18) when Aajao shared his laugh about plankers.

Who the hell are they, I asked.

Aajao then explained planking.

According to Wikipedia and The Telegraph, planking 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."

It is also known in other countries as "the lying down game."

Find it stupidity, but plankers has successfully set the fad on several social networking sites... some of them also claim that it's an art.

This year, more Pinoys has been observed joining the planking bandwagon.

Guess what, I tried planking!

But experts warn us, planking could do harm and lose our job!

Last May, an Australian guy has plunged to his death after an attempt to plank on a 7th-floor balcony in Brisbane.

Days past, eight employees of an Australian food market chain have been fired for planking during work and using store's equipments.
