Tuesday 20 September 2011
Twitter users report that politicians in the Philippines have proposed an “Anti-Planking Act” to stop people from planking (an act that involves being photographed lying face down in an unusual location).
Twitterers point out that “World hunger and poverty has yet to be fixed and ya'll are worried about PLANKING,” “Oh well, planking is a dumb thing to do, but creating a bill against it... waste of time and taxpayers money,” and “Philippines is signing a bill known as The Anti-Planking Act of2011 as it is apparently a form of protesting...”
Microbloggers are celebrating the release of American actress and singer Demi Lovato’s third studio album, Unbroken, wishing each other “Happy Unbroken Day.”
