RIPPED FROM TODAY'S INTERNET

HEADLINES, IT'S RAPID REFRESH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

JOHNNY QUINN, A MEMBER OF THE

AMERICAN BOBSLED TEAM, GOT

TRAPPED IN THE BATHROOM IN SOCHI

AND HAD TO BREAK THE DOOR DOWN

TO GET OUT AND TWEETED PHOTOS OF

HIS OR ORDEAL.

(LAUGHTER)

THAT IS LIKE A TURBO GLORY HOLE.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

QUINN TWEETED THIS PICTURE ALONG

WITH THE HASHTAG,

#SOCHIJAILBREAK.

SO COMEDIANS, PLEASE GIVE US

ANOTHER HASHTAG FOR THIS PHOTO.

HANNIBAL.

>> #IAMTHEREALKOOL-AIDMAN.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Chris: #OHYEAH.

ALL RIGHT, ESPY NATION TWEETED

OUT THIS MEME OF ASHLEY WAGNER

GETTING IN ON THE ACTION.

THERE SHE IS!

(LAUGHTER)

THAT WAS THE FIRST HALF.

LET'S SEE HOW SHE REACTED WHEN

SHE WAS INSIDE.

(LAUGHTER)

MEME FOR LIFE, ASHLEY.

MEME FOR LIFE.

ALL RIGHT, ONE OF THE BIGGEST

NEWS STORIES OF THE WEEKEND WAS

NGUYEN HA DONG, IS A HANOI-BASED

GAME DEVELOPER WHO DEVELOPED

THIS GAME CALLED "FLAPPY BIRD,"

WHICH IS HUGELY POPULAR.

AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN JUST

DECIDED TO PULL THE GAME THAT

WAS MAKING HIM $50,000 A DAY,

PULLED IT OFF THE MARKET,

STATING THAT HE COULD NOT STAND

THE ATTENTION THE POPULAR GAME

WAS RECEIVING-- IN PARENTHESES,

FROM NINTENDO.

BECAUSE THAT IS DEFINITELY SUPER

MARIO WORLD.

(LAUGHTER)

SO A MAN IS TRYING TO CAPITALIZE

ON FLAPPY BIRD'S SUCCESS,

AUCTIONING OFF WHAT E-BAY ITEM

FOR $350,000?

IS IT A. AN OLD PHONE WITH THE

GAME DOWNLOADED.

B. THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK AND

CONCEPT DESIGNS BY HA DONG.

OR C. THE RIGHTS TO A KNOCK-OFF

GAME CALLED "HAPPY TURD"?

(LAUGHTER)

AND I DON'T WANT TO GIVE IT

AWAY, BUT IT'S NOT THE THIRD

ONE.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK IT IS?

HANNIBAL.

>> YOU KNOW, I HEARD YOU, BUT I

STILL GO WITH MY GUT, I'M GOING

TO GO WITH THE THIRD ONE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Chris: OKAY.

FULLY AWARE OF THAT.

THAT'S YOUR CHOICE.

>> THAT'S HOW I FEEL.

I DON'T EVEN THINK I WAS

SUPPOSED TO PRESS THAT.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Chris: LISTEN, I DON'T WANT

TO TRY TO DIRECT PEOPLE.

IF YOU HAVE A STRONG CONNECTION

TO THAT, I WON'T--

THE CORRECT ANSWER IS A.

THERE IT IS, $350,000 FOR A

PHONE THAT HAS FLAPPY BIRD.

BUT YOU GET THE PHONE, TOO.

>> BUY IT NOW FOR $5 MILLION.

IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE WAITING.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Chris: "I'M REALLY IMPATIENT.

IT MIGHT GO FOR $5 MILLION."

IT SHOULD JUST SAY

IN PARENTHESES,

"YOU (BLEEP) IDIOT."
