The Joy of Tebowing

One of the best things about viral posing phenomenons like planking and owling is that they have a mercifully short half-life.

And since nature and the internet both abhor vacuums, it's time for a new micro-trend: Tebowing. In the last 24 hours of so, cyberspace has suddenly become glutted with photos of people emulating the Denver Broncos quarterback's distinctive one-kneed victory pose in a variety of unlikely settings.

As yet, no major celebrities have joined in (apart from Tebow himself), and there have been no reported fatalities.

While Tebow's ceremonial pose has been widely interpreted as a form of short-attention-span praying, I can't help thinking of it as a nod to Rodin's Thinker, as seen above. In any event, here are just a few of the many thoughtful contributions you'll find at tebowing.com, which is currently adding a new photo every minute or so.
