Twitter Jokes Of The Day: Monday 21 November 2011

Posted: Updated:
HUGH GRANT
Hugh Grant playing himself | PA

Starting today, Huffington Post UK Comedy will be bringing you the day's best jokes from Twitter.

When we say "jokes" we mean puns, one-liners and funny tweets. And when we say "the day's", we do of course mean Monday to Friday's, because nobody says anything that funny at weekends, do they? Plus that's when we have a lie-down.

So, yes - Huffington Post UK will be trawling Twitter and posting the funniest jokes we've seen so far that day - and making allowances for our American And Other Foreign Friends by including any they tweeted the day before. Because we are nothing if not a democracy. ("We" being Huffington Post UK Comedy, of course, not Great Britain which, as we all know, is a constitutional monarchy.)

But we digress. On with our favourite jokes (so far) today. And yes, some of them are about Hugh Grant.

If you spot a joke you think we should include, or know of a funny Tweeter we should be following, please tweet it/them my way at @jazzchantoozie. As I said to my boyfriend just the other night: if it makes me laugh, it's in.
