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:
1. Fun Fact:
2. Amazing if true.
4. Well, well, well.
5. I will never sing it the same way again.
6. Sounds like a plan.
7. We’ve all felt the urge.
8. Glory Days.
9. Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
Conservative dads are amazing because they can believe in GOD but not a chemical imbalance in your brain.

Why is knuckle sandwich the only food euphemism for punching someone? How about fist omelette. Or punch burger? Or you could kick someone and it would be a foot burrito. Are some options. Ok not my best work.

15. I think we all know what she’s referencing.
This is not how I wanted to learn the Greek alphabet

We need a “Thanksgiving” filter that adds seasoning and 35 more minutes in the oven to these pics of plates of food some of y’all insist on sharing.

I’ve been thinking about U2 a lot more lately, specifically because a medication I’ve been taking can be taken “with or without food”

20. The funniest Twitter thread I’ve seen in a while. Orson Welles reviewing everything.
He chills me…a ghoul who conjures the human solipsism that has fucked this earth. Reducing the noble feline to a pantomime of petty personhood with our calendar and indulgent hungers inflicted on him…deprived of his own mystery? It is Man this Garfield should hate, not Monday pic.twitter.com/yAHRHQ3EaF

At the first Thanksgiving, do you think any pilgrims ate so much they had to loosen the buckle on their hats?

Do the people who make duplicate keys know how hard it would be for us to do that on our own? It takes them like 30 seconds, and they charge like $3, but if I had to figure it out myself, it would cost me several months and fingers.

24. I think about it every day.
25. Important PSA!
