Early this morning, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake rocked Los Angeles, California and approximately two seconds later the joke began on social media. Originating near Westwood, the quake lasted for approximately ten seconds. Which is more than enough time to reach safety and immediately begin tweeting.

Fun fact! Scientists believe 'The Big One' will shake continuously for over two minutes.

#2 - Unless you think the earthquake is holding your dad for ransom obviously.


#3 - Of course this happened on the best day of the year for an earthquake.


#4 - It even has a name prebuilt in!


#5 - Not everyone handles the stress well.


#6 - And there's always a spooky coincidence somewhere, right?
