Funny Tweets Of The Week: The Budget, George Osborne, Cyprus, Press Regulation And More

Yes, that was the week that was. The week that George Osborne produced his red briefcase once again - and also joined Twitter.

The week that the Pope officially started his job, people were robbed by banks in Cyprus, a royal charter on press regulation was announced, the Americans Irish celebrated St Patrick's Day, Girls Aloud left the pop world, Voyager I left the solar system and the UK was hit by snow (well, it is almost April).

And as usual, we've rounded up some of our favourite giggle-worthy tweets about all of the above - and more of the week's events - in our slideshow below. Enjoy (responsibly - there's 1p off beer now, you know)!
