The two main contenders landed a lot of verbal jabs during the third presidential election, with Donald Trump calling Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" and Clinton burning Trump on his political experience. "On the day when I was in the Situation Room monitoring the raid that brought Osama bin Laden to justice, he was hosting The Celebrity Apprentice," the former secretary of state said.

But, as always, the best zingers came from the Twitterverse. Here are the funniest tweets on last night's debate.

Some viewers found the event extremely underwhelming.

Others resorted to Snapchat filters to make it bearable.

Or summed up the event with kids books.

The Huffington Post trolled conspiracy theorists.

Trump stumped people with his take on ethics.

Not every important issue was addressed during the proceedings.

Seriously, some big issues weren't given the attention they deserve.

Trump's meltdowns may soon have an official soundtrack.

Glenn Beck threatened to emigrate (no word yet on whether Canada plans to build a wall).

Some felt nostalgic for the tamer scandals of yesteryear.

Emmy Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus rushed to the Emmys' defence against Trump's allegations.

A new political bromance may have begun during the debate.

National pride was also rekindled...outside of America.

Trump's tanning credentials were scrutinized. 

Numbers were shouted.

The Daily Mail got shot down for trying to make "smile-gate" a thing.

And comedian Jay Pharoah taught us if that if there's one thing we should all take away from the 2016 election, it's that we should accuse anything we dislike of being part of a rigged system that's out to get us.
