Two Arrested While 'Planking'


Two men were arrested in Willoughby for trespassing as they were planking on rooftops. Planking, of course, is that pointless/popular "lying down game" where you lay face-down, with your arms at your side, on bizarre and challenging locations while someone else takes a picture of you. It's been around for years, but because someone recently died, the game's been coined a "new and dangerous internet craze" by the media. Even more dangerous: when those daredevil teens go to a "pill party," then pour vodka in their eyes, don a rainbow of bracelets declaring their sexual conquests, and then go planking. It's really serious stuff, man.

Anyway, Fox 8 reports:
