Michael Phelps Made a Grumpy #PhelpsFace, and the Internet Loved It

#PhelpsFace is the hottest meme online after Michael Phelps mean-mugged a fellow Olympian.

  • Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian ever, and now the subject of TWO memes. Everyone remembers his bong-rippin' ways from 2009. (Like Miguel Navia, Phelps is a swimmer who got a second chance.) But at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro this week, Phelps out-memed himself.

    When South African swimmer Chad le Clos put in his headphones and did a little dance before the 200m butterfly, plenty of people found it cute and endearing. Dead last on that list? Michael Phelps. Check out the face he made:

  • Naturally, the people of the internet went hog-wild with memes. My favorite is this high-quality GIF of Michael Phelps as Anakin Skywalker in the scene where (spoiler alert for a decade-old movie) he kills the padawans. Unfortunately the image won't embed on our website. So here's a tweet with basically the same point:
