(Nothing strange about doing this in public. Image courtesy of WhataPlanker.com)

If you haven’t heard of this latest hipster craze, Planking (AKA The Lying Down Game) is when a person lays flat on their back or stomach and stiff as a board in a random location and someone snaps a photo of them. Ingenious, isn’t it?

Anyway, there have been several variations of where “Planking” originated, but really you need look no further than our beloved sport if you want to know the true roots of the fad.
