Let's face it -- breakups are inherently awkward. If you're not a big fan of death glares and uncomfortable silences, you're better off just staying put in that relationship of yours.
But breakups can also be really, really funny, as Jimmy Fallon reminded us Thursday. The "Tonight Show" host asked his 11.9 million Twitter followers to weigh in with their most #awkwardbreakup and naturally -- since he's Jimmy Fallon -- the hashtag started to trend like crazy.
Always the good sport, Fallon started things off by divulging his most awkward breakup:
Girl broke up with me, walked out and then came back five minutes later because she forgot her keys. #awkwardbreakup
