Everyone on Twitter is making this same eclipse joke

Today's total solar eclipse is, of course, a social media event as much as it is a natural phenomenon. Twitter even rolled out an #eclipse hashtag that automatically adds an eclipse emoji.

And, of course, where there's Twitter, there's weird humor. I went on there myself to share an eclipse joke about Eclipse gum, Mitsubishi Eclipses and Twilight: Eclipse, and I thought it was pretty funny, too. 

Then I discovered how unoriginal I was.


It gets worse. Not only was I late to the game on Eclipse Day 2017, I was about eight years late overall.

Here is a tweet from 2009.


There were some pretty good jokes out there, though.
