When a story like the Brett-Favre-is-retiring-story pops up, Twitter lights up with some clever (and many, many, many not-so-clever) one-liners. Here are the best of what we’ve found (so far).

1. @MarkBradleyAJC: Favre announces retirement, says he plans to spend more time with Urban Meyer's family.

2. @MacGregorESPN: Pacing back and forth as he decides retirement, Brett Favre accidentally completes Redskins conditioning test.

3. @darrenrovell1: (three from him today ): No. 1: Thinking ESPN's 7-hour Favre special called "The In-Decision" will air soon. Sponsors: Wrangler, Sears & AARP. No. 2: Biggest $ impact on Favre retirement? Frank Caliendo. 1st Madden, now Favre (MAYBE). Guy has to be hurting. No. 3: Papers in Green Bay, NY & Minnesota hoping Brett Favre Thank You ads can boost bottom line

4. @SklarBrothers: Brett Favre is retiring so he can out on the road with Kiss for their 9th farewell tour.

5. @CaptainAnnoying: At any rate, Favre can only delay Joe Webb's inexorable ascent to greatness. He can't hope to stop it.

6. @PriscoCBS: I'm sick of favre play or don't u drama queen

7. @ImTheSportsDude: Now everyone understands why Mary left him for Ted, this Favre guy obviously has "commitment" issues!

8. @ccarlson04: Favre -Thanks for building up our dreams and then destroying them, just like Snooki did to the world's perception of Poughkeepsie

9. @YahooSportsNFL: The Vikings sure would like to have another shot at trading for Donovan McNabb right about now.

10. @FO_ASchatz: If my wife gets upset because I have to re-run projections instead of going to the beach today, I'm telling her to blame Favre.

11. @JTExperience: It's times like these when I'm glad the cable isn't installed yet.

12. @stholeary: Sports fans are so cute. "We don't care about Brett Favre anymore!" "Wait, he's retiring again? To Twitter!"

13. @TimGrahamESPN: Who does Brett Favre think he is? Aaron Schobel?

14. @CBSSports: We’re retiring our Twitter account for the day in honor of Brett Favre.

And, of course, the one that started everything:

15. @JuddZulgad: Brett Favre began telling Vikings officials last night he will NOT return for a 20th season.
