Twitter has blown up in response, with cringeworthy puns and crazy, creative ideas – all of which are ridiculously relatable.  Here are 17 of our favourite tweets so far:

“#ImSoBoredI had a staring contest with my dog, Jabba the Mutt. He winked so I winked back. Now things are awkward.”—@sunny_joni
