It might have been the biggest non-news story of the year: A rare yet significant 5.8 earthquake rocked the East Coast on Tuesday -- and pretty much nothing happened as a result.
"Glee" star Cory Monteith's retweet was the probably best response of all -- a pic of overturned lawn chair "damage," which is also being billed as the "DC Earthquake Devastation."
But Snooki's reaction was the weirdest:
"2012 is near, I knew it! I hope everyones okay!!!" the "Jersey Shore" star tweeted, referring to the ridiculous end-of-days theory.
Kidding aside, there was some damage. At the Washington National Cathedral, at least three of the four top stones on the central tower fell off, and cracks appeared in the flying buttresses at the cathedral's east end. The top of the Washington Monument has a crack, and the quake shattered windows and wrecked grocery stores near its Virginia epicenter.
From Snooki to Monteith to Alec Baldwin, let us know: Which celeb had the best earthquake tweet?
