Canberra planking?

Planking is sweeping the world faster than a flash mob.

Has anyone seen any good examples in Canberra?

They have been summed up rather well on ABC’s The Drum as “a bunch of plankers”.

Looks pretty stupid to me. Achieves nothing, and neither interesting nor funny.

At least it gave Darwin a chance to do his thing.

Indeed! I feel we do far too much these days to prevent natural selection having its way. Bring it on. The future of the species doesn’t need this cohort screwing up the gene pool.

The “lying down game” has been a fad internationally for years. Australians have just given it a more memorable name.

Eerily prescient.

It’s all fun and games till somebody gets hurt…

Surely planking was the root of Rule 34.

It’s not the first time that an obscure prophecy of John Lennon’s has come to light long after is death, and it won’t be the last, I’m sure. It begs the question why the mystery woman, the target of John Lennon’s affections, should have been carrying a stiff man inside in the first place, but I think I’ll leave that for more accomplished conspiracy theorists than I.

Indeed.

I am the plankman
goo goo ga jube

Well, amazingly, this clears up a mystery over forty years old. In one of their studio versions of “No Reply” the Beatles sing the following lines:
cause you walked hand in hand,
with another plank,
in my place…

I think of Jonestown when I see plankers.

Maybe wishful thinking, I don’t know…

Everyone knows about it now, therefore it is totally uncool for hep-cats like me to be seen doing it.
