Collecting the top attempts at hockey humor on Twitter for the week ending 11/03/2013.

Jesus Emery, you asshole.

You all know the deal by now, right? Stuff happened in hockey over the past week, people tried to be funny about it on Twitter, and there were about five jokes that were ACTUALLY funny. So here they are.

Here are the five funniest hockey-related tweets from the past week:


Everybody bullies poor nerdy Scrivens.


This one may require a bit of explanation if you don't follow as many Senators fans as I do. You see, Erik Condra is very bad at hockey.


I was waiting in glee/horror to see people begin to make jokes about Semyon Varlamov. Most weren't worth mentioning, but this was the best of the bunch.

#1 -The Fake Dan Ellis Memorial Tweet of the Week!

An excellent plan and an excellent tweet.

Remember, if you see a funny hockey tweet during the week and think it deserves a place in the top five, send it to me @MegalodonBOC .

Finally, this week I'm going to introduce a new aspect of this Twitter feature. I recently became aware of the Twitter account NHL Humor. This account has over 74,000 followers (more than James Mirtle!) and, as far as I can tell, involves "humor" only in name.

Starting this week and continuing until the account blocks me, I'm going to do a quick overview of the "highlights" of the past week of NHL Humor tweets to let you know if any of them were actually funny. It's a feature I'm going to call:

Was NHL Humor funny this week?

No, NHL Humor was not funny this week. Better luck next week!
