Planking at GameStop. How the fuck did THIS become a fad?

When I saw this pic I thought it was some sort of odd PhotoShop gag. Then I saw the term "planking" and realized this might be some sort of thing - a fad perhaps. Something this moronic demanded a 3-minute dive into google which led to a Wikipedia page about Planking.

I won't go into the intrinsic details strew across the consumer-ruined ARPANET, but I'm bewildered as to how the fuck something this ridiculous can go viral to the point at which people "know" about it.

Planking at GameStop

Planking is idiotic. Photographing it is idiotic. Seeking bragging rights on the aforementioned is idiotic. My spending time to bitch about it is idiotic. I fucking hate myself now.
Thanks for nothing, you stiff-spined dopes.
