If you’ve grown sick of these NBC/Olympics stories, too bad! We have nearly two weeks of Olympics and their respective tape delays left. I don’t even want to count how many hours of delayed Ryan Seacrest that is.

Here is a wild, EXCLUSIVE, Olympic story that could only be found by top-notch journalists with Internet connections and Twitter accounts (where could we find people with those qualifications? Not in New Orleans).

Anyway, buried lede: A Twitter account, @NBCDelayed has been mocking NBC’s ill-conceived, tape-delayed coverage of the 2012 Olympic Games. The account has only posted 29 tweets, but they are comedic gold; starting two days after the opening ceremonies, it has attracted over 26,000 followers in under four days.

Here are some of my favorites:

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait until Twitter tips off NBC, NBC files a complaint and Twitter suspends the account before re-activating it and apologizing. Man, wouldn’t that be a crazy sequence of events?
