Collecting the top attempts at hockey humor on Twitter for the week ending 9/1/13.

Celebrate good times, come on.
Celebrate good times, come on.

I take Labor Day very seriously, so I'm not going to do one single extra bit of work on this post.

Here are the five funniest hockey-related Tweets of the past week:

#5

Calling it the "Stanley Cups final" reminds me of that old Onion article about William Safire ordering two Whoppers Junior.

#4

Rudy never gets very many retweets on his stuff, so maybe he isn't really as funny as I think he is.

He and I share a very special relationship.

#3

Uber-dork Winging It returns to the top five after a blissful absence last week. Congrats, loser!

#2

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

This was basically the same joke as the previous one, but it earned a few extra points with me for being sexy.

Also, this Tweet isn't really about hockey so it doesn't count as an official Funny Five selection, but I thought it was great and Kid Ish told me to include it, so here you go:

As always, 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 .
