Every four years, the Winter Olympics features a wide range of sports that are truly addictive to watch, ranging from figure-skating, skiing, ice hockey, luge, curling--and so many more. For some, the Olympic events offer the opportunity to stare in awe at the seemingly superhuman athletic abilities of the Olympians.
For others though, it's an opportunity to be hilarious, as we saw over the course of the past three weeks during the Pyeongchang Games particularly on Twitter.
Remember the 'Olympics or Gay Porn?' meme from the 2016 summer Olympics?
Well, this year, the Internet delivered once again with many similarly hilarious gags and memes.
1. Pita Taufatoufa, the shiny shirtless athlete from Tonga was comedy gold:
Somebody bowl that Tonga flag-bearer down the luge track. It’s important that we see the slippery beefboy break the sound barrier.— Lyle Brennan (@LyleBrennan) February 9, 2018
2. This guy look familiar?
Don't see it? How about now?

YES I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE
*sets up for quad, but then I just wag my finger at the judges and smile*
BUT I WON'T DO THAT
[flawless score, a hailstorm of stuffed bears]
6. And of course, that self proclaimed "Glamazon B*tch," Adam Rippon:
7. Couldn't we all someday go to the Olympics?

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
8. But surely anybody can Curl, right?

DOWNHILL SKIING: Oh my God!
FIGURE SKATING: Oh my God!
BOBSLEDDING: Oh my God!
SNOWBOARD CROSS: Oh my God!
BIATHLON: Oh my effing God!
CURLING: Nah son, why are you playing shuffleboard on ice???

10. We just hope for 2020's Summer Olympics, we'll have a better handle on the viewing technology.
Maybe it will even come in 3D.
