The hilarious Sochi tweets from horrified journalists are penance for the horrible Super Bowl media week.—

We admit it: We snickered. Especially because we aren’t in Sochi covering the Olympics. (Thanks, boss!)
How bad are the accommodations for reporters? This bad:
Journalist Bruce Arthur reports that one hotel room came with a lagniappe of sleeping construction workers. Another offered the luxury amenity of its very own stray dog.
From faulty appliances to debris to an “indeterminate amount of semen on the sheets,” journos say the facilities are a sewerscape of DNA, disturbing smells and tetanus hazards.
And then there’s the water that “looked like a lot like cloudy urine.”
Also on the bright side: I just washed my face with Evian, like I'm a Kardashian or something.—

President of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Organizing Committee Dmitry Chernyshenko is so very sorry for the inconvenience.
Heckuva job, Sochi!
I am picturing Sochi Olympics social media team looking at the Twitter feed right now and cracking open another bottle of Stoli.—

And don’t forget this image that went viral last month.
