There’s a new medal-contender in the hotly contested category of best Olympic meme: It’s called Shoshi Games, and it’s … literally exactly what it sounds like.
Some enterprising Photoshopper is editing the head of Shoshanna from HBO’s “Girls” (actress Zosia Memet) onto the bodies of Olympic athletes. The resulting Tumblr of visual puns falls somewhere in that sweet spot between hilarious and absurd — since going online yesterday, it’s already been shared on social media more than 35,000 times.

For those of you interested in this kind of thing, the other leading Olympics memes include Johnny Weir’s wild and wonderful wardrobe, Hoth Olympics and various iterations of Ashley Wagner’s face. This contest can’t be decided conclusively, of course, until the end of the Olympics.
