Lately, Planking has been getting alot of pub in the pop culture world. Everybody is doing it...from sports stars to Hollywood. But, what the hell is it?

Wikipedia describes Planking as "The lying down game (also known as planking,[1] or face downs) is an activity, popular in various parts of the world, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game.[2] Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play.[2] The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved."

As you can imagine, I have a pretty interesting family...immediate and extended. My In-laws in the Maryland area have been hot on the Planking tip for quite some time now, so this sudden craze is nothin' new to these cats. Check out this gallery of some of their "Greatest Planks" around the Baltimore area, and cower in their Planking prowess. Thanks to the Tillies for letting me exploit them on my website!
