On August 26, just one week after a rare earthquake rocked the area, Hurricane Irene pummuled the East Coast residents for three days. Of course, the tweets flew faster than the storm. Below are the funniest twitter tweets that resulted.
@JimGaffian Speaking of mandatory evacuation. I just ate Indian food.
@sethmeyers21: NY Hurricane Tip: Leaving windows open while trying to catch cockroaches is a fun way to simulate “The Deadliest Catch.”
@Seth_Fried: If your apartment is hit by a dolphin, DO NOT GO OUT TO SEE IF THE DOLPHIN IS OKAY. That’s how the hurricane tricks you into coming outside.
@pourmecoffee: If you lose connectivity, just shout out 140 character or less updates into the storm. Not a huge difference, really.
@carzyauntpurl: To sum up FEMA advice in words everyone can understand, “Don’t be a dumbass. Don’t risk your life for Facebook pics of the hurricane. Don’t bodysurf the tidal surge. Morons.”
@lizzwinstead: Please do not fillyour bathtub with medication. There has been some confusion.
@RexHuppke: East Coast Residents: As a media professional, I assure you it’s OK to stand outside in a hurricane as long as you’re holding a microphone.
@wingoz: Earthquake from Georgia to Toronto, Hurricane Irene hitting east coast where 1/5 of population lives. The Mayans may have nailed it.
@tshirtshop: Oh jeez, and I just printed all those “I survived the East Coast earthquake t-shirts”!
@pattonoswalt: NYC’s getting a volcano and then a Godzilla attack next, right?
@JenKirkman: It’s taking Irene so long to come! This hurricane really IS a woman!
@marcmaron [in reference to last week’s earthquake]: Sorry east coast but I read the forecast for next week – fire and locusts.
@Jason_maybe: I was going to make a hurricane joke but I couldn’t think of one that didn’t blow.
@AlbertBrooks: Breaking News: Gov. Christie orders Snooki be tied down.
@JimGaffigan: It’s so obvious The @WeatherChannel is pro hurricane. Fair and balanced my ass.
@kateyrich: A gust of wind knocked a slice of pizza out of my hand. Hurricane Irene, you have already gone too far.
@borowitzereport: Breaking News: Internet Outages from Hurricane Could Force People to Interact with Other People, Officials Warn.
@whoami: So last week’s earthquake was supposedly Snooki falling out of bed. What’s this week’s hurricane? Snooki passing gas?
@idget: Irene is such a slut. She’ll blow the whole east coast just to get on the news.
