If there's one thing we can always count on, no matter if there's abounding political upheaval or social unrest, it's that the internet will remain the internet. It is unflinchingly that weird, unmatched place where we all congregate together to argue, to talk, and most importantly, to commiserate when we can't quite come to terms with what's happening around us. Case in point, the web is rife with Inauguration Day memes and tweets, and there are no signs of the comical content that is churning slowing down.

Listen, whether you're incensed about the president-elect becoming president, are for it, or are somewhere on the fence about it, these jokes are ones that anyone with a sense of humor can appreciate. After all, if you can't poke fun at yourself and your nation, what can you have fun with? Humor is often what brings even the unlikeliest of people together, and I see the ability to find funny tidbits in the midst of great tension to be both encouraging and refreshing. You know, so long as it's done consciously and tastefully, keeping in mind people's sensitivities at the moment.

Here are some of the best tweets and memes about the inauguration, because the internet is a joke-making machine:
