Sochi 2014: the weird and the wonderful
Read time: a bit over 1 minute
Russia’s hosting of the Winter Olympics was always going to be an interesting affair, but we don’t think anyone could’ve estimated just how interesting.
When this toilet came with another toilet
“Just the two of us, we can make it if we try.”
When this toilet came with another four toilets
“Just the four of us, this is getting weird.”
When this toilet came with room for an audience
It’s a new spectator sport.
When this toilet was half a toilet
Half flush is the only flush.
When you couldn’t fish in the toilet
Because everyone needs a reminder sometimes.
When the Olympic rings formed in the clouds
Proof that Russia controls the weather, surely.
When this mascot had no face
We know he’s just got his back turned, but this list would’ve been pretty short without him.
When a bobsledder got stuck in the John
No bobsledders were harmed in the making of this photograph.
When there was a floating head in the opening ceremony
So much going on, so little sense.
When…giant, terrifying ice skating mascots
Cute, massive and ominous.
When the Russian police force sang ‘Get Lucky’
Probably the best thing that’s ever happened to the human race, ever.
When this was the tap water
When there was a flying steam train
It looks cool, but we’ve no idea what it’s about.
When this elevator button existed
When this elevator lost its mind
When there was a security breach
Better hope Putin isn’t looking, lads.
When this was the only time in your life you haven’t wanted ice cream
No, thank you.
When this is only time if your life you haven’t wanted lemonade
Really, I’m fine.
When this is the only time in your life you haven’t wanted cake
Ask me again. I dare you.
