RIPPED FROM TODAY'S INTERNET

HEADLINES, IT'S "RAPID REFRESH."

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

THE OLYMPICS' FIERCEST

COMPETITION SO FAR IS WHO CAN

TURN OUT THE BEST OLYMPIC MEMES

AND GIFS.

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING MEMES

AND/OR GIFS GOT THE MOST

UPVOTES?

A) SHAUN WHITE AS FLAPPY BIRD.

B) PUTIN RIDING THIS CUDDLY

OLYMPIC MASCOT IN A VERY

STRAIGHT MANNER.

(LAUGHTER)

IT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE IT'S PART

OF HIS BODY, LIKE HE'S A

CENTAUR.

>> LIKE A BEAR-TAUR.

>> Chris: LIKE AN OLYMPIC

BEAR-TAUR.

OR C) THIS IS WHY HOTH WAS

DENIED ITS WINTER OLYMPICS BID.

(LAUGHTER)

THE AT-ATs: ALL-TERRAIN

ARMORED TRANSPORTS.

WHICH ONE GOT THE MOST RETWEETS?

APARNA?

>> I'M GOING TO GO WITH B, PUTIN

AND THE BEAR-TAUR.

I USED TO PLAY THE BEAR-TAUR.

>> Chris: OH, DID YOU REALLY?

>> YEAH.

>> Chris: I'M SO SORRY, THE

CORRECT ANSWER IS C.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

THE AT-ATs BLOWING (BLEEP) UP.

>> AND KILLING A MAN.

THAT'S PRETTY HARSH.

I MEAN THAT'S ACTUAL FOOTAGE,

RIGHT?

LIKE HE MURDERED HIM WITH AN

AT-AT, WHICH WAS REAL.

>> Chris: THAT WOULD BE FROM

"EMPIRE STRIKES BACK."

WHICH, BY THE WAY, I WOULD SAY

PUTIN IS VERY MUCH LIKE THE

EMPEROR AT THIS POINT.

>> YEAH.

>> Chris: "TAKE YOUR PLACE AT

MY RUSSIAN SIDE!"

(LAUGHTER)

EVERY TIME YOU SEE HIM, YOU JUST

THINK HE IS GOING TO START

SHOOTING LIGHTNING OUT OF

HIS HANDS.

>> I'M SEEING THE EMPEROR FROM

STAR WARS IN "THE EMPIRE STRIKES

BACK" WITH NO SHIRT ON.

WHERE IS YOUR ROBE?

GET YOUR ROBE.

>> Chris: HE STARTS HAND

SHOCKING HIS OWN NIPPLES.

>> MAKING THE FLABBY FOLDS MOVE

WITH THE ELECTRICITY.

>> Chris: AUTO-EROTICALLY FORCE

CHOKING HIMSELF WHILE HE

(BLEEP).

(LAUGHTER)

ALL RIGHT, THE EAST COAST IS

ABOUT TO GET POUNDED WITH MORE

SNOW AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS

YOUNG CHILD'S REPRESENTATION ON

THE NEW YORK ONE NEWS CHANNEL'S

TWITTER FEED.

STORM.

(LAUGHTER)

BY THE WAY, AMERICA NEEDS TO

WAX!

THIS IS...

(LAUGHTER)

WAY '70S.

OR JUST TAKE IT ALL OFF AND GO

GREAT PLAINS.

>> NO, YOU DO YOU, AMERICA.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Chris: SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED ALL

OVER THE EAST COAST.

HOW DID THE PRINCIPAL AT

WHITE KNOLL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

BREAK THE NEWS TO HIS STUDENTS?

A) SENDING A MASS TEXT SAYING

"NO SCHOOL. LATER, LOSERS."

B) RAPPING TO VANILLA ICE'S "ICE

ICE BABY'"

OR C) SENDING A SELFIE ON A

BEACH VACATION.

YES, RON.

>> B?

>> Chris: LET'S FIND OUT.

>> ♪ ALL RIGHT, STOP,

WAKE UP AND LISTEN

ICE IS BACK AND THE ROADS

ARE SLIPPIN. ♪

♪ ICE, ICE, BABY --

WE'RE CLOSED

ICE, ICE, BABY. ♪

(LAUGHTER)
