It had to happen. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o and his phony Internet girlfriend have inspired a new pastime: Te’oing.

Go Eastwood-style and grab yourself an empty chair, or just snuggle and nuzzle the empty space next to you. The possibilities are, well, if not endless, then at least giggle-inducing. Behold the imaginary romance:

    something is still fishy about this whole fake girlfriend thing, but until we know the truth, let’s have fun with it! i have my new girlfriends, one under each arm, why can’t i have two imaginary girlfriends? yes, one is a smokin’ hot blonde, and the other says she is a redhead, but i am not sure about that :–)

          My brother called me an oracle once for guessing the time exactly after 4 hours of work. Does that count?

    lol…have fun kiddies! Folks set themselves up for this stuff with their stupid choices and inflated egos. If this guy had a girlfriend for 3 yrs and never met her someone should have his head examined. He ain’t right.

    I would reply, but it’s time to feed my imaginary puppy, Snowball, and he has been known to get cranky.

      i had reports from your neighbors, time you start keeping that dog on a leash! and did he make the yellow snow?

    I hate to be cruel, but the fact that she was Te’o’s girlfriend makes me wonder if “Lennay Kekua” is Polynesian fir “Rosy Palm”

    I had a fake girlfriend, but then I found out she was a 57 year old man.
