I had some real work to do tonight, but I couldn't quit looking at all the Internet photos of people Dufnering. After that hilarious photo of Jason Dufner slumping on the floor in a grade-school classroom went viral on Thursday, people from Luke Donald to Rory McIlroy to Bubba Watson to Rickie Fowler to everyday golfers far and wide began posting their own photos of themselves, celebrities and even animals engaging in the Internet's latest craze.
I went back and scanned Twitter, and literally in the span of a mere couple hours there were dozens of Dufnering photos. So without further ado, here is a photo gallery of a couple dozen of the best shots I could find.
There is also a hilarious Tumblr gallery called "Duff Don't Care" that is the funniest thing I've seen there since the memorable ''McKayla's Not Impressed'' gallery from last summer.
You could see this one coming a long par 5 away. Jason Dufner's moment of classroom infamy began with this photo and post by Deadspin. As golf fans (and golfers) began to enjoy "Dufner being Dufner", some of his fellow Tour players were obviously enjoying the image as well. So much so, a new meme was born and is spreading fast on Twitter among other places.
Rory McIlroy should be given credit for tweeting out his photo poking fun of his friend's now classic slouch on the floor. Soon, Luke Donald, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson all joined in on the fun. Dufner has taken the ribbing in stride as he has started to retweet many of his followers who are sending him photos of themselves (or kids, or pets, etc...'dufnering'.) Look for several other images as well as now the entire sports world will set aside Tebowing...to all go Dufnering.

Jason Dufner, the 2012 Byron Nelson Champion, was back in Dallas today promoting the championship and delivering a keynote address at lunch. Prior to his talk, he was kind enough to visit with students at the Salesmanship Youth and Family Center. Unfortanately (or hilariously), this viral photo - first shared by sports site Deadspin - was captured during his visit.
For more on his visit, check out the original post from our friends at Deadspin.
