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...”
