You read about kids getting killed or injured from "planking"?

Kids, don't risk your precious selves planking. That's what photoshop is for:

When I was a kid, we couldn't afford to go all the way horizontal. Oh sure the rich kids could, but that's cause they weren't all hunched over from carrying sacks of coal. Course it didn't matter anyway, because back in those days they didn't have cameras, or, if they did, they were made from coal and didn't take pictures anyone would want to look at.

I don't want to give the impression that we didn't have fun. We did. I spent many a day lost in play. Mainly we'd play "don't let the coal truck back over you" and "don't get trapped in the mine".
