Over the weekend I was hanging out with some Aussie friends who got a kick out of participating in current meme called "planking". What is it? Well... here's a BBC article that tries to explain: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-13414527
Planking is a prank that involves lying face down in a public place, with photos posted on social networking sites. Why do it? According to the article, "Because it's utterly ridiculous. If you go on holiday, you take a photo of yourself in front of the Eiffel Tower or the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We thought it would be hilarious if you're not interested and lying down instead."
