WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- Monday's total solar eclipse was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing; and so were the tweets it inspired.
People around the country took to the social media site to post jokes about the celestial event -- and they had us laughing.
Here are some of the funniest tweets about the solar eclipse:
Twitter user @daM00n posted about blocking Twitter user @sun.
So did official NASA account @NASAMoon (rough day to be the sun).
Other Twitter users posted tweets poking fun at the fact that the celestial event shares a name with "Twilight" sequel, "Eclipse."
Bruce Springsteen offered followers a friendly (and punny) reminder when he told them to "wear proper glasses" or else risk getting "blinded by the light" -- the title of one of the rockstar's most popular songs.
The Twitter account for popular pastry MoonPie threw shade at Hostess after it declared its Golden Cupcakes the "official snack cake of the eclipse."
Some of the best tweets were about a rivalry between the sun and moon as it was blocked out.
Twitter user @annetdonahue compared the eclipse to "Mean Girls" character Damian.
User @cbquist joked about not being able to look directly at the eclipse by warning against provoking a "solar attack."
Other Twitter users also poked fun at warnings to avoid looking at the eclipse.
Of course, some of the funniest events on Twitter were the ones that... Actually happened.
