You might have felt it, and we definitely felt it, too. The 5.9 magnitude earthquake that hit southwest of Washington, D.C., just before 2 p.m. this afternoon left our editors wondering what kind of party we were missing.

Here are the 10 funniest and most interesting tweets we’ve seen since the rumbles. Share your own by tweeting @BostonMagazine or hashtagging #earthquake and #boston.
