    Re: Planking

    A kid "planked" on stage at today's Ankeny High School graduation ceremony. I found it humorous.

    I didn't even know what planking was until I read the below link this morning. Its amazing how worked up people get over the simplest of things.

    There are other instances as well. Some of the pics I've seen of "planking" are funny, but most are just stupid.

    Just once, I'd like to get "sacked" from my job, or to "sack" someone else.

    Re: Planking

    Maybe I should go down and plank on some of the downed trees that the tornado knocked down a couple blocks from me.

    BTW, the weather kinda sucks up here.

    Are we thinking about the same thing? That sounds kind of painful.

    Re: Planking

    Planking is just the new fad that is doing everyone a favor by thinning out the herd. Before it was ghost riding the whip


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Planking

    I was hoping this thread was about grilling. I've been wanting to try that.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Planking

    It's actually pretty funny if you don't do something really stupid like do it on a moving car...here are some pictures that were taken during a rain delay at Indy Motor Speedway.
