Tebowing [Pics]


Tebowing is the latest internet meme to hit the internet. Will it become the next planking type internet craze. The whole thing started when Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow won his first NFL game on Sunday. he got down on one knee with his fist under his chin to pray and thank God. The verb 'Tebowing' would be the act of giving thanks while on one knee. The latest crazy has sent people on their knees and it comes close on the heels of 'Rapture Bomb', the internet crazy of taking a picture of people's clothes minus the people. This craze seems destined to hit people around the world as entire teams con now be seen Tebowing. Here is a pic of Tim Tebowing below and others who have followed. Please share your thoughts in the comments section below. And if you think you need to take you own shot Tebowing. Please add the same below. remember you need to do this when other people around you are doing something else. Also known as the latest way to celebrate Goals. If you have achieved something you can Tebow to commemorate the achievement. This photo fad is set to grow big.

Anti-Planking Act of 2011



Quezon City Rep. Winston Castelo has filed a bill called the "Anti-Planking Act of 2011," in the Philippines. As soon as the news broke, supporters of Planking took to Twitter to voice their views. It seems although planking might be dangerous, supporters don't think their needs to be a law against it. The reason why planking is being frowned upon is although it is so harmless. It has led to a death and lots of people loosing their jobs. 



Planking" The art of lying face down with your arms beside you and your legs stretched out. Is a fun activity that people do and has led to many offshoots. Like Owling Batting, Horsemaning, Batmaning, Razorbombing and stocking to name a few. 




Here is his bill:

AN ACT PRESCRIBING A UNIVERSAL CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT WHEREBY PLANKING BY A STUDENT OR GROUP OF STUDENTS DURING STREET RALLIES OR SIMILAR PROTEST ACTIONS AS A FORM OF REDRESS OF GRIEVANCE BE STRICTLY PROHIBITED AND APPLYING APPROPRIATE SANCTIONS THEREOF.




Here are some comments from Twitter users.

The Philippines fail to pass a long over due reproductive health bill but this they introduce #Anti-Planking Act of 2011

The Anti-Planking Act of 2011 is even more useless and absurd than the act of planking itself.

Anti-Planking Act of 2011 and we don't have laws against illegal squatters and jaywalkers? No wonder our country's messed up.

The Anti-Planking act of 2011 though??? World hunger and poverty has yet to be fixed and ya'll are worried about PLANKING




These are Tweets from users in the Philippines and you can guess the sentiment.
