Well if the picture featured here with this story isn't enough to persuade you to give up the planking craze then I don't know what will. I guess if people getting killed while planking isn't enough to slow folks down, it's going to take drastic measures like this to reign it in.
To me planking appears to be nothing more than just laying down. As someone who wakes up at one in the morning I can appreciate that. I know it's just a fad, a phase, a monkey-see-monkey-do, look at me moment in time. I am sure by this time next year planking will be spoken in the past tense like so many other great fads of yesteryear.
