There’s this thing that the young humans are doing these days called planking. The humans, they think it’s new but us in the animal kingdom have been doing it for years. And personally, I think we kind of do it better, you think? I gathered some pictures from different places – the Internet, iFunny and from personal friends to show you some examples of animal planking 🙂
Have you heard of this planking or some people call it the Lying Down Game. For the most part, humans try to find an unusual spot to lay face down. Both of their hands touch the sides of their bodies. There’s competitions to find the most unique spot. The term planking refers to mimicking a wooden plank thus ‘planking’. It seems like a really easy thing to do, right? I mean dad does it almost every night on the sofa. You can tell because he starts snoring – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud)
Planking can include lying flat on a surface or holding the body flat while it’s supported in only some regions, with other parts of the body suspended. A lot of humans have photographed their unusual locations. They then post their pictures on Facebook or the internet to show their talents. I know this cute little turtle is not doing ‘planking’ per say because his little back legs are up buy hey you try to do this over the water and on a little stump.
In 1994, Tom Green (a comedian) invented planking. He was caught on a hidden camera lying down on an Ottawa sidewalk without moving and there you go – history was made!
But as you can see, planking is not just for the humans. We do our own style of planking for fun. And squirrels – they are really the best at this game. There’s something about them that is just so comical in planking. Don’t you agree?
And this cat and dog, well, we are just going to say they were planking and leave it at that. What do you think? snorts
So today, here is your challenge. Why don’t you try this planking and see what kind of unique picture you can do. Post it and let’s see what kind of neat animal situations we can get into my friends.
