“Tebowing” Alternatives


First of all, let’s state some credit where credit is due:

“Tebowing” is an inspired internet meme – inspired maybe only just enough to get rid of that incredibly stupefying “planking” nonsense – but that achievement should be appreciated by all. Long after Tebow’s career is over, no matter what success or comedic failures he encounters on the field, let it be remembered that he killed Planking.

Now that that is out of the way, late’s take a quick peek at the bombardment of cutesy images of the Tebowing meme. A couple samples:

Really? Tebowing in front of Crutches Guy? That's just cruel.

Cute? Yes. False Idolotry? Not sure. Also not sure if "idolotry" is a correct usage. Let's just move on so we don't get bombarded by angry religious complaints.

Tebowing has taken the nation by storm, and my Twitter feed is full of folks posting their own random Tebowing poses. Goodtimes? Sure, if the lack of oxygen at Mile High is getting to your sense of the awesomely cooler memes we could be launching instead.

In spirit of that, we give you our suggestions for “Tebowing Alternatives.” Feel free to run with these, take pictures, and submit them all over the internet.

To kick things off, let’s turn to the NHL. Take it away, snark portion of my brain:

Lorentzing: holding aloft a hockey stick with a plastic bat impaled at the end. (Great Halloween costume, actually.)

Haseking: some sort of epilectic breakdancing. Open to artistic liscence.

Warning: "Haseking" not to be tried while intoxicated. You've been warned.

Folignoing: Ah, the Foligno leap! Have someone snap a pic of you with both legs tucked into your midsection. Skates optional. (Tip-o-the-sunglasses to @Jason_Griswold for offering this one up.)

"Toyota!" NO. "Folignoing."

Regehring: Probably not a good idea. Involves pushing someone into a wall, really, really hard. (Tip-o-the-sunglasses to @ABielman316 for this one.) Possibly useful for Police Academy hazing.
