These are the real first two paragraphs of the obituary for an Eagle, Colo., man, which appeared in the Columbia Daily Tribune on Wednesday:

Jim Driver, 1933-2012

James H. “Jim” Driver, 78, of Eagle, Colo., formerly of Columbia, passed away Monday, March 19, 2012, at South Hampton Place in Columbia after a brief illness. An avid Broncos fan, he abhorred Manning and evidently wanted out before a deal was done.

A service is planned for late May at Jim’s favorite place on Earth, the “Big Rock” at Sylvan Lake’s Yeoman Park in Eagle, Colo.

In lieu of flowers, those who knew Jim are asked to Tebow for him at 3 p.m. sharp.

    That has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. Anyone who “Tebows” should do it in a minefield. Planking thinks that lame

      It’s still not as bad as planking
