It’s always great to have a little humor along with the grandeur of the Olympic games. The funny people at Funny Or Die have recently released two Olympic-themed videos starring Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte (and his infamous grille), Sir Patrick Stewart (“X-Men”), Simon Pegg (“Shaun of the Dead”) and Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”). The video features a scraggly Stewart as a very experienced ticket scalper who has decided to scalp tickets at one of the most important events in the world–the Olympics. Williams plays Stewart’s scalping helper, and Lochte (and his grille) are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Pegg ends the video in true Olympic fashion. Check out all of the scalping hilarity here.

Lochte stars in another video called “Peeing in Pools with Ryan Lochte,” in which the swimmer discusses the path to being a champion at peeing in pools. He discusses his disdain for toilets and the perks of urinating in huge pools. There is a certain training process one must go through to be able to pee in pools at the level of Lochte, and he outlines this training in the video. Check it out here.
