Back at it: Comedian Maher takes to 'treebowing' in Hawaii

It's crystal clear that comedian Bill Maher and Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow won't be swapping friendship bracelets any time soon.

Maher -- not an ally or fan of organized religion -- took special pleasure in the openly devout Tebow's three-interception meltdown against the Bills on Christmas Eve, tweeting the following after the game:

"Wow, Jesus just (screwed) #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler 'Hey, Buffalo's killing them.' "

The "Real Time" host was back at it Saturday, filing an update from Honolulu, where he claimed to have stumbled upon deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong Il (or someone resembling him) sunning on a lawn chair in Hawaii.

Seeing the resurrected (and tanned) dictator was enough to bring Maher to his knees, Tebowing in a photo that he shared with his nearly 900,000 Twitter followers.

For his next stunt, Maher took to TREEbowing, striking a pose while nestled in the branches high above Hawaii's working class.

This all comes in jarring contrast to the tale of Joey Norris, a 13-year-old leukemia patient who sent his Tebowing photos to the quarterback earlier this season and received an invite to the Broncos' regular-season finale against the Chiefs on Sunday.

The question lingers: Would Tebow extend an olive branch of mega-dimensions if Denver makes the playoffs -- saving a seat for Maher, his most vocal critic?
