Ten best jokes from our #GIMMEJOKES Twitter thread

So, Gimme Noise and all associated City Pages websites all decided to collectively go on the fritz for a few hours on Tuesday afternoon. And for those folks who weren't out performing some sort of civic duty, this could've been a crushing blow to work-time procrastination as we know it. We scrambled and sent out this tweet: "We are experiencing some technical difficulties on the blog. Anyone know any jokes?" This was a bit of a joke in itself, as this is usually what's said at a party when conversation hits a stand-still.

Impressively, though, the Gimme Noise readers began tweeting out their twisted humor to our delight almost right away. Here are ten of our favorite moments from #GIMMEJOKES 2012.
