The New Planking

Exhibit A: Ridiculous stock photo feat. on Glamour.com

The newest internet meme I got wind of today is a sarcastic cousin of planking and a more time consuming version of perching: stocking. 

To 'stock' is to re-enact a cheesy stock picture the best you can. Stocking may or may not be funny to you, but as someone who has written at TON of corporate blogs, and scrolled through hundreds of iStock photos... this is rich. Glamour Magazine has some of the most hilarious stock photos in their articles. I know they're dumb, but as a social marketer, I do see stock photos as a necessary evil. 

Some quick examples from Stockingisthenewplanking.com:

"Dad forgets to delete history."

"Girl really loves pump."

"Attractive female professional spreads out and uses entire floor as mouse-pad."


Maybe these new "stocking" pics are just a conspiracy for us blogging geeks to gain access to thousands and thousand of stock-like photos...for FREE. < insert evil laugh here >

Anyway, I'm having a super chill Saturday. Just got back from running errands and stopped by Jo-Ann fabrics to grab some painting supplies...keep your eyes peeled for an art project from me soon :)
