  • Stocking is the new planking

    Hilarious internet meme. I think it beats planking hands down! ROFL.

      Sorry for the "duh," but can someone tell me what "stocking" and "planking" are?

          Planking is a recent internet meme. Here are some planking pics.
          Stocking is a new meme where folks replicate stock photo images for fun.

          From some random site I found:
          To play, all you have to do is find a stock photo of somebody doing one of the mundane things that are featured in stock photos, and then try to replicate that pose as best you can. The blog Stocking Is the New Planking is the official clearing house for these images of imitation, a few of which you can check out below.


          This ironing one cracks me up...

            Ah, thanks, gotcha. Basically flag-pole-sitting and phone-booth-stuffing for the 21st century.

              They showed Stocking on the CBS Early Show this past weekend as the latest trend. Once they do that the trend should be over. too much time for some people.

                Trends, by who discovers it and when:

                Day 1 - People who were there when it was first posted
                Day 3 - People who keep up with internet memes
                Day 20 - People who frequent general messageboards
                Day 50 - CBS Early Show

                  well, I actually did hear about it before that.
                  but they way they were talking about it and how cool it was.

                  you could add:

                        Toshi, I am glad you shared I think this is hilarious, unfortunately since I found out about it here, it's too late for me to play along!

                        Typ, you seem to have the best links!

                            That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                            Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                            Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
                            I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
