13 Funny Musicians You Should Be Following On Twitter

We realized we're always telling you which comedians to follow on Twitter, but we never give any love to the non-professional funny people who have transformed our feeds into endlessly sublime time-killers. So we decided to come up with a short list of some of our favorite musicians who have a habit of tweeting comedy gold on a regular basis. Some you probably already know and follow -- Kanye, of course -- but hopefully there are a few new ones in here for you, too. Rate your favorite tweets and tell us who we forgot in the comments.
