As the action in Sochi gets underway with much enthusiasm, satirical Twitter handle @SochiProblems has received more followers than the event itself.
The bizarre Twitter handle tends to mock the problems at the event and the venues, ranging from the recent discovery of the 'twin toilet' photo that went viral on the internet, to the news that a Russian billionaire donated money to find shelter for hundreds of stray dogs, in order to save them from being killed as part of the preparations to the grand event - a story that appeared in the New York Times.
By Friday morning (ET), the funny Twitter handle had more than 185,000 followers.
Let's take a look at the top 10 jokes and memes:
