Synchronized Solo Diving

Your talking point for today's Olympics watercooler conversation has arrived: An internet genius who goes by exgexg on Imgur riffs on the classic "diving into a glass of water" gag by plunging the Chinese synchronized diving team into a couple of Solo cups. Marrying the visual pun with a verbal one, he titled the artful GIF mashup, Synchronized Solo Diving, and it has amassed nearly ten million views at time of publishing. A solid runner-up is the Photoshop job of the Trump Tower suctioning American swimmer Michael Phelps' cupping bruises, but exgexg gets the gold.

Ah, now it makes sense
