Hurricane Sandy Humor Hits the Web & Brings Some Comic Relief


Hurricane Sandy is on its way, and the press has made no bones about it. It's either the "worst storm ever" or the "biggest storm of all time" or the "storm to end all storms." Let's just say the headlines haven't exactly been restrained. For people living in the path of Sandy, this can mean not only several trips to the store to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and ramen noodles, but a panicky crying jag while you clutch your battery-powered lamp in one hand and your drink of choice in the other. Luckily for us, there's Twitter. One of the small upsides of any major event, no matter how dramatic or traumatic, is Twitter tittering. And Sandy is no different. A little comic relief in tense times is always welcome, if you ask me. Though I won't be laughing if my computer ends up floating in the East River. Here's some of the best funny #Sandy tweets.

Absolutely. What else is there to do?? It's the only power you have over nature. 

I say this, steps from our sultry Malibu sunset.
