So, beating Monday Blues along with the gloomy weather outside, Mumbaikars are finding relief in humour. The Internet is buzzing with punny jokes and sarcastic tweets. From massive road cave-ins to bridge collapse and other accidents have left most citizens fuming, but one look through the social media sites, particularly on Twitter — the people are trying to stay afloat and keep their hopes alive with a dash of humour.

Not just that, Twitter has been flooded with videos of the water-logged streets and railway stations and many found their own ‘waterfall’ in the heart of the city at a station stairway.
