Yes, I mean "funny ha-ha". But I also mean "funny strange". In a good way.
Part of the appeal, for me, at least, is that the 140-character limit means you have to condense whatever it is you want to say into a few small sentences. You have to think when you post. Because of this, the people on Twitter have honed their humor to an art form all its own.
And now, it's my great pleasure to present to you ten people whose wit made me literally laugh out loud this past week. (As opposed to the "internet version", which is to just type "LOL" while you continue to shovel cheese puffs into your gaping maw.) If you're on Twitter, follow them. If you're not, join...And follow them.
In no particular order...

False alarm on outbreaks of Mad Cow Disease. Instead the cows are just really disappointed in us, and that hurts even more.
