'Teoing' goes viral after Manti Te'o's death girlfriend stories

Washington, Jan 18 (ANI): After reports emerged that the death stories of Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o's girlfriend in September were untrue, the world of internet memes turned the story into the latest trend.

A Tumblr page, which went live on Wednesday, shows user-submitted photos of what the internet is calling "Teoing", Fox News reported.

To create these photos, users put their arm around an "invisible girlfriend" and take a photo.

Some photos also show men pretending to propose to no one.

The photos focus on the fact that Te'o seemingly never met his supposed girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, who he said died of Leukemia.

Chase Reynolds, 26, who created the Tumblr page, said that he got the idea after seeing one user tweet a Teoing picture.

He said that many have since shared the Tumblr link and users have been submitting photos to be added to his site.

At first he was just grabbing a few from Twitter and then a bunch of people started submitting stuff. He thinks a lot of people are getting a kick out of it. (ANI)
