Twitter wits can't stop spinning puns and throwing jokes at cricketer Monty Panesar who has been fined for drunkenly urinating in public after being asked to leave a nightclub.

The Indian-origin English spin bowler was thrown out of a club in London's Brighton area after his disorderly conduct in his drunken state.

Apparently the spinner bowled a googly to some women in the club, who didn't take it too well, after which he was thrown out of the pub. Panesar then allegedly went up to the promenade and urinated on the bouncers.

As amusing as it sounds, the incident earned the bowler a fine for disorderly conduct and beyond that, a salty sea of ridicule.

Most readers, in their comments, called his conduct 'typically Indian'. But Twitterati was at its witty best.

Needless to say, 'Monty Panesar' was trending on Twitter, given the many veiled jabs he was mentioned in.

Sarcasm, Twitter's best trait, made its presence known in almost every single non-news tweet about the bowler and his tryst with bouncers (just not on the cricket field).

Given how insanely funny the incident sounds it visibly made a lot of people's day by giving them a lot to laugh about.

As far as Panesar goes, he did apologise for the incident but, this one might prove to be a stain hard for him to get rid of.
