Some of you who claim to have tasted the bitter putrescence that is disappointment never ordered a Tom Brady only to receive a Tim Tebow.

The latest remarkable image floating around Imgur features the plight of one fan who ordered a Tom Brady Fathead and ended up with the exact opposite of that order: a Tim Tebow poster.

Such an exchange is like ordering a cheeseburger only to get tofu, or asking for change for $20 only to get two fives and a punch to the stomach.

This story does have a happy ending, because this fan will now have to find more walls to fit all the Brady he is about to receive, via Darren Rovell:

Here is what the Imgur user received in the mail:

And now a closeup of the order to verify that he really did ask for a decal of Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, not the guy still trying to convince a team he can complete a pass:

The only thing the fan could offer was, "What did I do to deserve this?" 

The heart sinks for an ecstatic fan who no doubt ran down to the mailbox like Ralphie about to get his Little Orphan Annie decoder ring. Really, the only thing worse would be getting slapped across the face the second you are handed an ill-fated envelope. 

It's almost as if there was someone with Jets loyalties attempting to troll a random Patriots fan by supplying what I assume is a growing pile of Tebow posters over at Fathead. 

I can just imagine this fan's reaction after his shaking hands tore open that package with excitement usually reserved for Christmas Day. 

And there, poised and locked to throw an incomplete pass, is Tim Tebow. You could almost hear Nelson Muntz in the background

Suddenly, my worst day ever is looking far better by comparison.
