If making jokes were a game at the Olympics, India would definitely win a gold medal at it.
From our former gold medalist Abhinav Bindra to our hope Sania Mirza, all the athletes at the Rio Olympics have added to India’s dismay. Although we still have some athletes trying to get India their first medal at Rio Olympics 2016. However, most of them have struggled long way to even beat their own record. BUT there’s one sport (let’s call it a sport to feel better) we are definitely winning a gold medal at. Making jokes, of course. Since the opening ceremony of Rio Olympics, Indians have been tweeting funny jokes and memes. We have compiled the best ones for you here.
I have broken every world record at this, Mom
What a loser. *eats chips, burgers, pizza, world*
WHY ISN’T ANYONE FILING A PETITION FOR THIS CAUSE
Final round se pehle badaam kha leta toh….
Wow, that actually makes me feel better about my job
WHERE IS THE LIE
How every Indian feels after watching Olympics for an hour
BHARAT MATA KI JAI
More hilarious stuff from our beloved Twitter mates:
Every mom in India says “Jaa bhaag kar market se ye le aa” and still we are not able to produce a athlete like Usain Bolt.

The only useful Olympics event is Modern Pentathlon. Shooting, running, fencing, swimming, show jumping: Essential life skills for Gurgaon.

If you told a Desi aunty some gossip, and put another Desi aunty at the end of the track – they’d win Gold in the relay race every Olympics

Olympics is that mega sporting event that happens once in four years to remind us about names of countries we never heard about

Michael Phelps has 21 Olympics Gold Medals. With this much gold, one can marry off 2 daughters to engineers in India.

Similarities between the Olympics and Ashutosh Gowariker’s movies:
– come once in 4 years
– around 15 days long
– main dono hi nahi dekhta

I love the chaotic nature of watching Olympics. Some random people jumping, shooting, running, throwing. Somewhat like parliament.

Olympics is a small stage for Indians to participate in Archery. We have already conquered bigger events like Ramayan & Mahabharat. ?

Indians don’t win gold medals in Olympics because there is no written exam there and they are trained to win a gold only by studying.

Amazing #LalitaBabar makes it to the final of Steeplechase.
A Steeplechase is an obstacle race.
Obstacles like Indian apathy and funds.

Well.. Those memes and tweets prove that Indians are good at only four things:
- Curating articles about it (lol at me)
Even though India’s Rio Olympics campaign has been disappointing but let’s not be a Shobhaa De, they went there against all odds and tried their best. Medal or no medal, we’re very proud of them. Most of all, we’re proud of those who make jokes.
