Hey, do you guys remember icing? Where dudes would give other dudes bottles of Smirnoff Ice and then those dudes totally had to chug it? Fuckin hilarious, makin' your bro drink a bitchbeer. Good times down at the beach. SUMMER 2010, man. Good times.

Anyway fuck that shit, the new noise is planking. What's planking? Fuck, man, get with it. Planking is when you just lie down fuckin straight as hell, just wherever. Like, on stairs, wherever. You gotta do it with a friend, cuz you need someone to take a picture, but it's totally worth it.

What? You don't get it? Fuck you, man. Check out this website. Tell me this shit isn't hilarious. Look, it's an old dude! Face down on a goddamn table! What? You don't see the picture? Well, you gotta scroll down. Keep scrolling. I dunno, dude, it's a fucking blog! What the fuck are you talking about, tables? He's laying on a table! Frames? Dude, shut the fuck up. Just fuckin' click your mouse and scroll your ass off and keep your nerdy bullshit to yourself.

Gonna sign up for this newsletter, man: Planking tricks those assholes don't want me to know. PLANK THE WORLD.

Seems pretty old if you ask me. 2009, by this date.


This is certainly not a new craze.
It's been around since last century at least

When I first got into planking it was a genuine underground scene, where everybody had this amazing passion for what they were doing and were true to their planking roots. Now it's become this commercialized, mainstream sort of phony-planking bullshit ... it makes me sick to my stomach.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
