Funniest Super Bowl 50 Tweets Because You Don't Need Cable To Appreciate The Humor
There's no denying that the Super Bowl is one of the United States' most faithfully observed holidays, but the reason why this day, of all days, is important, is evolving. If you don't care about football, you can care about the commercials and if you don't care about the commercials, you can care about the halftime performance and if you don't care about any of the above at all, you can care about social media's reaction to the biggest game (and most expensive commercials) of the year. And that means caring specifically about the funniest tweets of Super Bowl 50.
Should everyone care about the Xs and Os of the game of football? Maybe, I guess? It honestly depends. The truth is, you don't need to have an intimate understanding of the game to understand why it is so entertaining, and why people should at least try to appreciate and/or enjoy it. Athleticism aside, the Super Bowl, like many televised events, from the Golden Globes to The Bachelor, into an opportunity to show your wits and talent for 140-character criticism on Twitter. And the 2016 Super Bowl is no exception. There is some major hilarity happening on social media on Super Bowl Sunday. Here are some of the funniest tweets of the night.
