Here Come the Steve Harvey/Miss Universe Screwup Memes

In case you didn't tune in Sunday night (Sunday Night Football? God forbid, you weren't watching TV?), or haven't been goofing around on the Internet yet today, well, TV host Steve Harvey screwed up about as bad as you can screw up. As host of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, Harvey announced the wrong winner. It's basically the only thing you CAN'T do as host of a beauty pageant. Which, is always a bizarre cultural phenomenon in the first place, since it involves judging women on... beauty? And poise? Who knows.

The clip is all kinds of awkward. The shitshow starts at 0:37.

Harvey already came out with a full apology on his Facebook page. It's staid and sincere.

Hey Everyone, I made a terrible mistake tonight in announcing the wrong winner and runner-up for the Miss Universe...

But no cringe-inducing clip will ever escape the Internet meme factory. Nor will those memes escape a listicle-style article dump. To bring you just that, here are a bunch of memes spawned by Harvey's unforgettable fail. I even made one! It's marginally funny (right?).
