Planking Latham style

By johnboy 16 May 2011 37

planking

On Friday we asked if Canberra was failing to keep up with the idiot planking meme.

This morning we’ve had our first Canberra plank in, with bonus fire bin, from Latham.

Congratulations to all involved.

What’s Your opinion?

I just saw a young man “planking” on a balcony at the public housing units behind glebe park! If I hadn’t been driving I’d have taken a photo for evidence.

Guess he didn’t hear the public safety warning…

Or living there finally got to him.

Why are there cameras up there? Are those pesky satanists and christians rumbling again? Does planking mean you have accepted satan into your life?

I think it might be because the beacon on top is somewhat important to airport operations.

Maybe thats what Pastor Danny wants you to think…..

If you must circulate it give the correct attribution.

How can you be so sure that it was stolen and not thought up independently? I had a similar thought about <strikeWplanking the other day. Is it surprising that someone could put such a thought into words independently?

According to one news source Sam Newman was photoed planking. That is enough to convince me that it is for fools alone.

I’m waiting for upright planking (i.e. standing up) to become a meme. I already have that one down pat.

Is there a flagpole on Mt Ainsle? I know that there is a big pole with a beacon on top. But I also know that when you get about halfway up you come face to face with several cameras….

yeah, but the difference beween that and planking is; a) it is funny, b) people would *like* to see that sort of thing…

“Prime Minister Gillard has today decried the planking menace in The Age:”

Good to see our esteemed PM tackling tough social issues.

Good to see some dumbarse journo asking a dumbarse question

Still; I’m betting he has a go… The Libs around Oz are taking their adversarial *VERY* seriously… stupid mugs…
