    For those who aren't big clickers and therefore don't get the "iron man" double entendre, it wasn't a random piece of wood or a snowboard... this is a dude who ran Marathon des Sables (a big stage race in the desert) with an ironing board on his back.

     

    No shit.

       taking pictures of yourself ironing in unusual locations.

       

      Wait.  Is that what the kids are doing now?  Planking, owling, Jolieing, ironing?

              Not taking MdS seriously REALLY starches my shirt.

               

                I think this is really dumb. Now what's this jolieing you're talking about?

                      I knew something smalcolm didn't!  And I'm old!  I knew about jolieing.

                       

                      I don't know about 'owling'.

                       

                      I am scared to google it.
