Manti Te'o

Mocked Online

'Te'oing!'

Well, that didn't take long ...

Following in the tradition of Tebowing, owling and planking ... the Internet has given birth to a new trend -- Te'oing ... inspired by the Manti Te'o not-really-dead-girlfriend scandal.

Here's what you do ... put your arm around your invisible girlfriend ... and take a photo.

It's hilarious ... and it's already blowing up.

FYI -- Notre Dame says Manti Te'o will address the media over the scandal later today ... so, stay tuned.

What's sad is that this guy is being made fun of for something that people have always done to take the social pressure off to have a girlfriend or boyfriend. He might be a gay guy and that's taboo in his culture or his religion, so he made up having a girlfriend.
