Is Te’oing the new Eastwooding? Manti Te’o’s fake dead girlfriend inspires new meme

Clint Eastwood was ahead of his time!

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:

Don’t worry! Your secret’s safe with us … and our readers.

She’s from Canada. You wouldn’t know her.

    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.
