Health Department Warns of "Planking" Perils

The Mental Health Department has advised parents to supervise their children when “planking”, warning that the fad could be dangerous.

Director general of the Mental Health Department, Doctor Apichai Mongkol, has commented on “planking”, the latest fad in which participants lie face down with both hands touching the the side of their body in unusual or incongruous locations and then post the photos of their acts on the internet.

He advised that parents should supervise their children because it could be dangerous doing planking.

He added that children must be told to plank at only appropriate places so they would not cause trouble to others.

Apichai believes that the craze will soon fade away, especially if it is frowned upon by the society.

At any rate, planking is currently gaining popularity among famous Thai entertainers.

Parents should supervise planking?

It could be dangerous, so a parent should supervise? Who writes this idiocy?????? How about knowing where your kids are most of the time, and giving them a clip around the ear whenever they do something stupid. I think that is far more likely to have an effect.

Maybe I should supervise them playing chicken with trains, or trying to play with the traffic.

Clean out the gene-pool.

Chlorine for the gene pool indeed. First you have to be dumb enough to find this fad amusing, and then take the extra step into idiocy to 'join the fun'.

I think the ministry of commerce should take note. Thailand has potential to become a south-east asian or even world planking "hub". The place is perfectly suited to this. Forget about banking, e-commerce and cars. Stick to bonking, planking and food!

Try not "giving them a clip around the ear"
