Yes, we all love books here. In fact, you should probably be reading one instead of this website, but come on. You’re on the toilet or the subway right now. That’s no time for mind-expanding fiction.
Sometimes, you want to unwind with a few funny short jokes. Thankfully, that’s really all anyone is posting on Twitter these days (unless you count all the un-Democratic misinformation. There’s always room for that on social media.).
Not everyone is built to write the next great American novel. Some people like to fit their genius ideas into a tweet under 240 characters. That’s good for everyone. We don’t always have the attention span for a long, drawn-out essay about our first sexual experience or a reflection on the pervasive ennui that affects all novelists. None of these people have the attention span to write anything longer, I promise you.
Unless we’re counting a half-hour comedy spec script. Many of the people below have a ton of those. For now, let’s read the funny tweets that deserve a Pulitzer.
Here are the funniest tweets I had time to find this week:
A crypto company has bought the naming rights to the Staples Center for a record breaking price tag of SEVEN monkey pictures.

Has anyone mastered the art of showing their ID and vax card yet? I somehow can’t do it without dropping all my credit cards then accidentally flashing a nude on my phone.

Got the booster and the nurse administering the shot showed me the label on the syringe like it was a bottle of wine. I was like, “Ah, 2021- wonderful year.”

Whenever I have to buy a nice gift for someone I don't know every well, I always totally choke and get them like a bag of fancy buttons or three pounds of designer ham.

The other day I told my mom about a lunch meeting I had with someone and she was like “oh did he live in Japan at some point” and I was like “no why” and she was like “I don’t know. just a question to pass the time”
