What is planking? Planking was originally thought to have been invented by humans. It was the deliberate act of lying the body in a face down position and holding oneself completely rigid. Extra points of hilarity were awarded if the plant was performed in an unusual or bizarre place. In addition the palms of the hands would usually been placed alongside the body. Furthermore the toes would typically be touching the ground. For all intents and purposes one would be attempting to resemble a blank of wood.

Arctic Fox invented planking

Planking went viral and humans adopted it like no other craze. Memes, videos, images you name it, Planking was in! But an Arctic Fox has shattered everything and changed the face of planking forever. Albert has laid claim to the invention of planking. The Platypus secured an interview with Albert who said that the fox community had been doing it for centuries. In addition, it was a core part of being an adult and formed a crucial part of education for young cubs. But Albert had another sensational claim, the humans had been doing the planking all wrong.

Albert said that the true Arctic Fox technique involved an airborne vertical plank. It was something that was performed suspended in air as the body hung in motion. The humans had been doing it all wrong by lying down. Albert said he would demonstrate, he readied himself and leapt. As he sailed upwards his body contorted mid air, he twisted vertically so he head was pointing downwards. Finally he tensed his body into a perfect rigid plank, truly a majestic sight to behold.

Humans didn’t invent planking

The Arctic Fox, also called the polar fox, or snow fox, is a small fox native to the Arctic. It is found across the Arctic tundra biome. It is well adapted to living in cold environments, and is best known for its thick, warm fur that is also used as camouflage. Albert the Arctic Fox said it was typical of humans to steal from the animal kingdom, they’d been killing and stealing the coats of his kin for centuries. The least they could do would be to give the foxes credit for inventing planking!

Albert the Arctic Fox has finally claims to have invented planking before humans.
