Big news, sports fans—the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially kicked off as of like...this morning! Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka had the privilege of lighting the Olympic cauldron, thus beginning an exciting two weeks worth of athleticism, patriotism...and funny memes and tweets galore. Not sure what it is about Olympics that bring out the absolute funniest in people, but I sure as hell am not complaining!
As the Games continue on, prepare yourself for hilarious Olympic discourse, which I have gathered for your reading pleasure below.
There's a tie in from 'The Office,' naturally
There's a reason why The Office is such a popular show—there's just so many relatable and laughable scenarios that somehow seem to fit IRL...and this "medal ceremony" is total proof.
Uh, athletes were marching to video game music during the Opening Ceremony?
And of course, all the gamers watching couldn't help but fangirl about how awesome it all was.
About the Olympic cauldron lighting...
I mean, of course, athletes could use a literal torch to light that bad boy up! But have they considered this other totally feasible and arguably cheaper option? 10/10 for creativity!
Turns out the Olympic village beds actually aren't sex proof
A rumor started making the rounds that Japanese authorities were making Olympic village beds out of cardboard and other sustainable materials to prevent the athletes from having sex. Turns out this rumor is partly false—Mexican athletes took it upon themselves to test the beds to see if they could support the weight of more than one person...and surprise! They can! Pretty sure the athletes will be fitting in a romp or two (when they're not competing, duh).
