Because we'd rather be known for being a party school than good clean fun like planking. I dont know these kids but my thought is this... they seem to be good kids, and if this is the worst thing they do..... WKU should be proud to have them as students. I think it looks silly but what do i know. All i can say is this, It appears a couple kids made a website based on this silly practice and are selling shirts and stickers based on it. If they can make extra money and self promote whatever this is they do than more power to them. Way to go kids! Just remember this first rule in business is "location, location, location" and the second rule is "any publicity is good publicity!!!" So keep doing what you do because this will only help you sell more shirts and stickers..... And for your next shirt... BANNED! I might just buy one.
