Funniest tweets about the total solar eclipse
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:

TWO KINDS OF ECLIPSES
Other Twitter users posted tweets poking fun at the fact that the celestial event shares a name with "Twilight" sequel, "Eclipse."
BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
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.
'CAKE OF THE ECLIPSE'
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.
