This awkward video of Theresa May laughing with a little too much gusto has gone viral - but there's been plenty of other great Tweets in reaction to Philip Hammond's first Budget.

And in what was seen by many as a dry Budget, the Chancellor's own gags also drew some comment:
Chancellor or stand up comic? Philip Hammond says Jeremy Corbyn is "so far down a black hole that even Stephen Hawking has disowned him"— Agatha Brolan (@AJBrolan) March 8, 2017
Some good jokes in the budget today. And Philip Hammond was quite funny too #Budget2017— Chris Morgan (@MrMorgy) March 8, 2017
Jokes coming thick and fast. Philip Hammond has always been quite funny in private - clearly now has the confidence to do it in public...— Rupert Harrison (@rbrharrison) March 8, 2017
