A reader submitted the following adorable picture:
By now, I would think everyone knows what planking is, right? Regardless of what you think of planking – the photos out there always give me a smile. The person who tagged me in the above photo stated:
R. De Leon: Of course… He saw everyone doing it, so he wanted to do it too.. That’s why it’s funny. 18 month old boy planking by choice. Lol
Yep, choice by a toddler (just watch out what other behavior is modeled!). I’ve been chuckling at all the posts by local DJ Sammy “The House” Ramirez who coined the term “Fuanking” – for those who use the oh so popular Spanish FUAAAAAA while they plank. Check out his Fuanking folder on Facebook.
You can’t discount the owling or teapot fad either but they still have not replaced planking’s viral popularity. They all remind me of inadvertent trends like the one I accidentally started months ago before I had ever heard of planking. Oh yes, my friends and family can be smart***es.
I am still getting pictures sent in by friends making fun of the odd placement of my hand in one single picture – dorks :).
So what next can we expect? The Laredo sweating sun look, the Jett Bowl strike tiptoe stand, the Laredo river monster slither, the crossfit pukie pose, or the Taco Palenque too full for words pose?? Who knows what new fad awaits our local fadistas.UPDATE: I spoke too soon. Mr. Sammy “The House” Ramirez is attempting to start a new fad as of this weekend – a praying pose. To each their own but here is the Facebook Folder of his other examples.
