As congressional lawmakers negotiate a bill to fund federal operations, the government right now looks likely to shut down in the coming hours. But that doesn't mean there's isn't any room for a little humor in the meantime.

National Journal's Elahe Izadi started the Twitter hashtag #ShutdownPickUpLines, inspired by the late online publication TBD from 2011.

Here are some of the better tweets from this afternoon. Some may be a little crass for our readers:
