Elections are serious business, no matter where they take place. But everywhere, it seems, people make room for a little humor no matter how solemn the occasion. This week’s first round of presidential elections in Egypt was no exception. Here’s a small sampling of tweets highlighting the human side of the poll.

If you’ve seen any tweets which beat these, assemble them in Storify and send us the link through our Contact page. All tweets (please, no more than 10 per link) must be in English. No profanities and no attacks on individual candidates, though. If it passes muster, we’ll add your collection to this page.
