Please, world, let us be done with planking. It has gone too far. People are now falling off of the top of golf carts and then nearly getting run over by said golf carts. A person has actually died. Soon, our pets' heads will be falling off.
And there are other arbitrary poses to make now. The leisure dive. The bat. The owling thing. We understand that these whimsical distractions are healthy for everyone. But as with any fad, planking has gotten too extreme. It is no longer just another harmless, prostrate American pastime. It is trying to do too much. Let us return to our couches before someone really gets hurt.
