Forget gold medals; the real prize at the 2014 Olympics — or the booby prize, as it turns out — is none other than Justin Bieber!
To the victor go the spoilers, to the loser goes… the Biebs? The Twitterverse is abuzz with talk of deportation after someone suggested that the loser of the Olympic men’s hockey game between the United States and Canada, taking place Feb. 21, should have to keep Justin Bieber forever.
USA Vs. Canada: Loser Gets Justin Bieber
Though it’s unclear where the joke originated, many people have been sharing the notion on Twitter, including Indianapolis radio station 99.5 WZPL:
US plays Canada tomorrow in Olympic Hockey. The loser keeps @justinbieber

Of course, this isn’t the first time the internet has feverishly discussed the possibility of deporting Justin somewhere. Justin’s known enemy Drake Bell recently tweeted that Justin is “talentless” and should be sent back to Canada for good, linking to a petition started on the White House’s official website.
(Yes, that White House. I can’t even.)
