    I like how it got kinky at the end of the news report.

    “Law enforcement, of course, not likely to take the stunts lying down. They’ll be watching for them.” Doing it for the children. The 20 year old children.

    I do not know which is stupider the act of planking or the worry over its consequences. If this is all the MSM has got it is time to shut ‘er down.

    WGN Chicago… Where’s the guy from the teen werewolf thread who cracked that at least they don’t do crap reporting like this in Chicago?

    I’ve watched that video 5 times now trying to figure out if that’s his real nose or if it’s attached to his glasses.

    Jeez, WGN TV news is THE WORST in town, bar none. Maybe ten years ago they were actually pretty good, now the whole thing is just trying for cuteness. Can’t hardly blame them though, the crap gets decent ratings. Being a CW affiliate probably has a something to do with it, gotta keep those 87-IQ teens tuned in after watching the dopey CW shows.
