    I think most people have been dreading today. Even though the act of democracy in itself is rather beautiful, election days are inevitably ugly. No matter who wins, we are guaranteed to see a messy whirlwind of vitriol and anger.

    But there have also been some laughs. Twitter is filled with election day gallows humor. Here are some of the best tweets that made me laugh slash weep uncontrollably.

    Royal Jordanian spots an opportunity

    No, really.

    Okay, that was pretty funny.

    It begins.

    Poor Twitter

    My contribution (I’m sorry)

    More to come

    Provided that I’m not catatonic with sadness or fear, or that I’m not just completely shitfaced (and really, could you blame me?), I’m going to keep updating this. If you’ve seen any hilarious tweets, let me know in the comments below!
