(Newser) – American figure skater Ashley Wagner, whose very selection to the US team proved controversial, is stirring the pot again. In perhaps the first meme to emerge from the Sochi Games, Wagner was photographed smiling radiantly after yesterday's performance—until her score was announced and put her in fourth place, and she scowls epically and appears to say "bullsh--." (Deadspin has the GIF; suffice it to say she was expecting a higher score.) US gymnast McKayla Maroney spawned a similar meme with her look of disgust over her silver medal in 2012. In another Olympic faux pas, the Washington Post notes that speedskater Olga Graf won Russia's first medal today—and accidentally almost flashed everyone when she "totally forgot" she was naked beneath her suit.

Her score was a bit low, but that Yulia girl kicked Ashley's ass sooooooooo bad it was amazing. A girl that young shouldn't be allowed to move the way she does. Gold medal for sure.

She needs to close her mouth because of squirrels are trying to hide their nuts somewhere for next winter!
