We couldn’t make this stuff up even if we tried! Apparently an 18-year-old Iowa girl was so desperate for a date to her senior prom that she decided to take a life-sized cardboard cutout of quarterback Tim Tebow.
“I wanted to go to prom with my group of friends but all of my guy friends had dates,” the 18-year-old wrote in an email. “I didn’t want to just go to prom with anybody, because then I wouldn’t be able to be with my friends the whole time.
“I figured I would get some laughs out of my friends, and then in group pictures, I wouldn’t have to be standing alone,” Bird said.
We’re not sure if we should laugh or feel sorry for the girl…
An Iowa teen took a cardboard cutout of Tim Tebow to her prom. People thought it was really him because he never made a move on her.
