23 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of December 11, 2023
It’s been the longest week in the history of time, and there was a surplus of news to prove it. 2023’s best movies and television shows started their final lap with this year’s slate of Golden Globe nominations. The nominees were full of expected dominant forces and glaring snubs. But the biggest thing that was missing? A host. Chris Rock and Ali Wong were offered the gig but declined in favor of sitting back in the crowd as nominees instead.
In heartbreaking news, we lost the heart and soul of Brooklyn’s 99th precinct as Andre Braugher passed away after a brief battle with lung cancer. Of course, he was remarkable in weightier roles in Glory and Homicide: Life on the Street, but it’s hard to not always also remember the deadpan joy he brought as Captain Ray Holt in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Between this week’s highs and lows, we’ve had some funny tweets to lift our spirits and keep us going. The funniest include those about a nepo baby with the spirit of a mall manager, the Academy’s blatant Irish discrimination and the hands only a serial killer could love.
