Obama's Udderly Awful 'Spilled Milk' Joke Is the Brunt of Hilarious Tweets (VIDEO)

President Barack Obama's State of the Union Spilled Milk jokeWhen President Obama addressed Congress last night in his third State of the Union, there were loads of high points. Personally, I was really feeling his proposal to up the income tax on super high-earning households. (Sorry, Mitt Romney.) However, without a doubt, my favorite part of Obama's speech was probably the cheesiest part: His spilled milk joke.

Did you miss that one? I'll leave you in suspense about the details for now. All you need to know is that the joke wasn't funny -- in fact, it was really cheesy -- and it resulted in a dismal pity laugh throughout the gallery and an obligatory smile from Vice President Joe Biden. Those poor politicians may have been polite about Obama's wisecrack, but Twitter users? Not so much.

Let's take a look at the funniest Twitter reactions to Obama's mooooo-ving joke:

First things first, a little background concerning the joke: The president was speaking about federal rules his administration has eliminated because they didn't make any sense and cost billions of dollars in taxpayer money. He mentioned one rule in particular -- from 40 years ago -- that forced some dairy farmers to spend $10,000 a year to prove they could contain a milk spill because milk was classified as "oil."

"With a rule like that, I guess it was worth crying over spilled milk."

... and the Tweets began:

@CitizenCohn: Spilled milk joke, ugh. Memo to Obama: Stay off the humor, stick to singing. #SOTU

@studentactivism: My theory is that Obama bet someone on WH staff he'd tell that "spilled milk" joke. #SOTU

@andylevy: OH NO YOU DIDN'T

@haymakers: Obama to Navy Seals: When I say "spilled milk" during my SOTU address, take those F'ers out. #Copy #DeadPirates #p2

@JonahNRO: "Spilled milk"? IMPEACH!

@tjholmes: Obama should fire whoever game him the "spilled milk" joke. LOL Even the First Lady wasn't impressed!
