Hugh Hefner, Playmates go planking

Hugh Hefner's girlfriend Anna Sophia Berglund has some effective powers of persuasion.

As Hef explained on Twitter Wednesday, "After the Uno game, Anna got me to plank on the dining room table." And in what appears to be his pajamas, no less.

But why plank alone when there are playmates around? Literally.

"I have a table full of planking Playmates here at the Mansion," Hef tweeted Wednesday. "See photo."

    I hve to admit that I find the whole planking thing to be hysterical. I know it started in Australia about a year ago and has just caught fire. As far as Hef's plank goes, it reminds me very much of the late Sam Kinison's bit @ waking up in hell face down on a slab, thinking he can handle death, only to be sodomized by the devil. I also can't help wondering if they had to sterilize the table for the girls after his Depends leaked all over. What an embarrasing ass this guy is!

    Stupid, find something else too do. Who thought of this, but like Hef's sense of humor at 80+ years of age.

    I'm not sure what you read when you Googled planking papy, but no where am I finding anything about devil worship. Everything that I've read is saying it is a game that has gained criticism because of the similarities to the slave trade-era practice and manner of stowing slaves upon the planks of the slave ship's lower hold. But devil worship or slave transport, wouldn't you agree that it is an idiotic trend?

    Planking is a way to worship the devil you can just google that OK NOT JUST Planking is what was done to slaves when they were being brought over from Africa. They were stacked on top of each other on the boats to maximize space.

      What happen to your sense of humor? Not everything has to be about slaves. You would be a happier person if you just went with the flow.

    Planking is what was done to slaves when they were being brought over from Africa. They were stacked on top of each other on the boats to maximize space. I'll bet that if more people were educated on where this "trend" stems from, they'd stop doing it.

    Planking has to be the dumbest trend I've ever heard of. At least obnoxious things like parkour get you out and exercising. Pretending to be a piece of wood in/on random places/things is not creative or interesting. The only funny part is that people were actually stupid enough to die planking in places like balconies.

    The viagara stopped working, so hef prepared "special kool-aid" for all the playmates before consuming the rest himself. RIP Hef, may you do it like a bunny in the big field in the sky.
