The Social Craze That Is Planking…

Because the real Cruise Law blogger has been out of town on vacation, I (Caitlin Burke), have been helping him post to CLN the past couple weeks. And while I enjoy posting the typical CLN articles, I have decided to mix it up a bit while I have the opportunity. So here it is ladies and gentlemen, CLN talks planking. Planking (according to Wiki) is an activity 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. Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play. The term planking is described as the practice of lying down flat with arms to the side, to mimic a wooden plank. I first discovered planking about a month ago while watching Chelsea Lately. Her guest star, Rosario Dawson, described the art/sport of planking and planked a chair on the show. I was mildly intrigued, but not at all prepared for the social craze that is planking. I soon saw people planking everywhere. Snapping photos and uploading their pictures to Facebook and Twitter. I've selected some of my favorite planking photos and posted them on this blog for your enjoyment. I tried to find some photos of people planking on cruise ships but was relatively unsuccessful (I did attempt to stay in CLN theme, Jim). So maybe someone will submit a good planking photo for Cruise Law News (CLN) to post… If you plank on a cruise, submit your plank to However, be careful! I recently read about a young man who died planking on a balcony. Unbelievably tragic. For more fun planking photos, check out Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic, who apparently are planking FANatics.
