It seems like everyone in the world is watching the 2018 Winter Olympics, which makes the games the perfect subject matter for hilarious jokes everyone will understand.
Nobody knows this better than the comedians of Twitter, who have outdone themselves with Olympic levels of wit!
If Adam Rippon wins a medal, Mike Pence has to personally bake a gay wedding cake. Sorry, those are just the rules.— Jess Dweck (@TheDweck) February 12, 2018
Even the less popular sports are inspiring huge amounts of patriotic passion!
Adam Rippon got a healthy dose of Twitter love:
Russia already won the U.S. election give Adam Rippon his gold medal— Ira Madison III (@ira) February 12, 2018
I hope there’s a skating judge who’s like, “Uh hey guys, Adam Rippon didn’t give us quads but he did give us THE TRUTH.”— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) February 12, 2018
Many were proponents of the "Average Joe Competitor," a normal person who competes for comparison's sake:
Watching the #WinterOlympics, and I'd like to resubmit my proposal for the Average Joe/Average Jo Cam™, where a regular person does the same events as (and is overlaid next to) the elite athletes, to give some perspective of the insane talent on show. Make it happen @BBCSport.— 𝔸𝔻𝔸𝕄𝔹𝕆ℕ𝟛 (@adambon3) February 11, 2018
Before every Olympic event they should send out one average person to perform the upcoming event. To fall on their face. Completely fail. Just so those of us at home who watch the Olympics and think “I could do that”, realize we can’t. We really can’t.— Michelle Bhasin (@michellebhasin) February 11, 2018
C’mere Phyllis, we’re going to get your ski boots all strapped in. You’re next up on the Giant Slalom. Yeah just lean forward.... 😬— Ron A. Brown (@Sdvballron) February 11, 2018
Resisting Olympic humor is a waste of time - even when doing household chores, there's no escape.
Good work, Twitter, you're sweeping up the competition!
