The Sofa Spectator's Guide To The Olympics...

Sure the Olympics are great, but the couch commentary is ten times funnier...

Rio 2016 is well under way, and while we are all completely stoked for Team GB's growing medal count (hooray), half of our TV watching time is being spent secretly following the hilarious Olympics tweets and social media sofa commentary going on across the Internet.

And while some of the funniest tweets from Rio 2016 have come from the Olympic athletes themselves (Emily Sonnet's #crackalack tweet, lol) — and how could we not mention #PhelpsFace — much of the online hilarity has come from the likes of you and I, the Olympic Games couch judges who like to engage in a little bit of social media punditry along the way. Preferably over snacks. We're ALL armchair experts, apparently.

From diving to gymnastics, here are a few nuggets of Olympic social media gold to have you chuckling all the way to the bus stop. Enjoy...
