It's official: Jeremy Lin is the man. The Harvard grad benchwarmer turned overnight basketball superstar has made almost everyone who has never cared about the New York Knicks (me included) -- or even basketball in general (yep, guilty of that too) -- become completely infatuated with him and his team. Just last night, the 23-year-old hit a three-pointer with less than a second to play, helping the Knicks win every game (six so far) he's played in.

Linsanity is taking over! And there's nary a tattoo or criminal record on the dude in sight! He seems like a really decent guy that everyday folks like you and me can rally behind. No wonder he's taken the social media world by storm. You can't seem to go a few minutes without seeing a Twitter update about "#Linsanity." So we rounded up 15 of the funniest ones just for you!
