Whether or not you care about Manti Te’o, the confusing hoax/scandal/Catfish-ing has produced some pretty incredible comedic moments over the past few days that will likely continue for as long as it takes to get the full story, which keeps getting stranger.
These Te’o jokes are all very funny but let’s all try and remember that a person who never existed is dead.

Thankfully, Funny or Die has jumped on the bandwagon as well with a Manti Te’o eHarmony parody ad. “I hate fake people. They’re just so…it’s like they’re not there when you’re talking to them. But it’s different with Lennay,” says Eugene Cordero portraying Te’o, as the camera cuts to a two shot of him and an empty seat on the couch. Lennay becomes his real-life imaginary friend. He plays catch with her. He feeds her chips. He fondles the computer. And he even references the hoax.
Watch the video after the jump. It’s just what we all needed on this Friday afternoon.
