From Jesus Praying to Well-Balanced Dogs

These planking-inspired creations all take a different twist on the Internet sensation that is planking. For those people who have just decided to join the world, planking is an urban game where one simply lies flat as a board on anything from escalators to fences.

After planking became popular, people began to parody it with all sorts of ideas. 'Perching' became the knock-off where instead of lying flat, one would perch like a bird on top of something. That was soon followed by 'Going Ostrich,' which involves sticking one's head into things, including toilets and guitars. Planking even became dehumanized when vegetables started doing it.

So if it's a boring summer day and you have nothing to do, try one of these planking-inspired pranks to get you off the couch.
