Olympics…With a Side of Funny

There were some great moments during the 2012 Summer Olympics, no doubt. No disrespect to all the wonderful athletes and their accomplishments, but there were some pretty funny moments as well.  Luckily for me and my warped sense of humor, many of those weird times were captured on film.

Water sports had their fair share of hilarity:

Synchro swimmers were some of the scariest athletes at the games.
Divers’ faces are funny enough, but add Photoshop…
…and Painting the Bowl becomes the newest Olympic sport.
Whoa. Is this NBC or the gay porn network? Not that I’m complaining.
Admit it, you had this same thought.

Other athletes (and some spectators) were unintentionally funny:

Wrestling move shown here: the Hickory Nut Crunch.
He wondered why the ball was getting bigger, then it hit him.
Going for gold. You’re doing it wrong.

McKayla Maroney’s obvious displeasure with finishing second in women’s vault was made into a meme that went viral almost immediately.  One example:

Mckayla is not impressed with Gabby’s gold medal.

Sometimes it wasn’t what athletes did, it was their names that were funny:

His name ranks right up there with Karen Cockburn and Dong Dong.

One last thought for those who question the money spent on Mars exploration:

Puts things in perspective, eh?
