First Posted: 01/07/11 02:48 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:25 PM ET

Gone are the days when someone must tune into a late night talk show or go to a comedy club to hear topical jokes about the day's headlines. Today, Twitter has given many comedians a reason to turn joke telling into a 24/7 business. Even during relatively slow news cycles, like right now, comedy wordsmiths still make topical jokes about the events in the news available to a mass audience. Here are some of the best tweets from our favorite funny tweeters that cover today's biggest stories, from the "Huckleberry Finn" controversy, to John Boehner, to Ted Williams.
