Doink is the example of a professional athlete making precisely the same expression I do when I pour too much beer in a glass and it’s foaming over the lip.

For years I believed that this was the pinnacle of slapstick comedy. For too long have I searched for it’s successor. Countless hours were wasted sifting through uninspired sitcoms and unfunny youtube videos searching for something, anything to take up the mantle. I had lost all hope, resigning myself to the fact that Ron Swanson would never be topped. And really, is that so bad?
It turns out I was simply searching in the wrong places. Sports, I believed, was a place of perfection, of flawless execution. No professional athlete ever falls on their head, or hits a fellow competitor with a blunt object unintentionally. That would surely be madness I reasoned. How wrong I was. From Rollerblading Raptors Mascot to Doink! and Sniped Mets Fan, sports gifs are a, dare I say the, gold mine of physical humor.
So join me brethren in elevating Doink! to it’s rightful place among the pantheon of slapstick comedy.
