If you don’t know what planking is yet, welcome to the Internet! When you have a moment, please Google “Encyclopedia Dramatica + Offended” (Ed Note: DO THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THIS). Anyway, planking is when someone lays down on their stomachs, perfectly flat, with their arms at their sides. Anyway, Katy Perry gave it a try last week on a yacht only to fail completely, then rectified it by planking again while dressed as a mermaid. Why? Because screw you that’s why.
Planking involves posing for a photo while lying face down in an unusual public place, and has proved popular with music stars including Kings Of Leon and Justin Bieber. But Perry’s first attempt came under fire from fans who took aim at her posture, which saw her hold her arms out in front rather than by her side. In a message on Twitter, the singer posted a new picture of herself planking while dressed as a mermaid, and said: “PROPER planking FTW! #itswhatArielwoulddo.” SOURCE
Oh come on, seriously? How hard is it to get planking wrong? I can plank in my sleep. Well, actually that’s because that’s exactly how I sleep but shut up, I’m not the one who failed a first attempt at planking. This is on Katy dammit!
