Playing or planking?

I'm actually not sure if this is a proper planker or just someone looking to cover up a rough night out at the pub. We'll give Alan Taylor-Shearer, the photographer, the benefit of the doubt; he explains that the photo is of his wife catching a quick plank before the kids get home for the day. Either way, it's awesome.
