Twitter digs deep for gags about the Toronto tunnel

Was it the work of enthusiastic engineering students? Shady drug dealers? Minecraft fanatics? Right now, no-one knows who built the sophisticated 10-metre tunnel that was found near York University last month. Whoever decided to build the t-shaped underground passageway knew what they were doing: the walls were reinforced, a generator powered electric lights, and a sump dump deposited groundwater away from the dig.

While police and national security officials probe the incident, Twitter users did what they best--made wise cracks. Here's the best of the reaction to the Toronto tunnel.
