Jamie Weinstein Senior Writer

As Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s dictatorship teeters on the brink of total collapse, commentators have taken to Twitter to send their well wishes to the Libyan people and to tweet their best jokes. The jokes have ranged from poking fun of the many spellings of Gaddafi’s name to lampooning MSNBC for not having live coverage of the situation until very late.

Here are the top 10 funniest tweets so far:
