Make any big announcement, and Twitter will react (read: make jokes/memes). So witty one-liners, SMS forwards and memes were sure to follow Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

Here’s social media’s take on the issue:

Many Facebook and Twitter users updated the tagline ‘US is counting votes and India is counting notes’ to express their humour and reaction to the sudden announcement. A Facebook post read: And yet again Modi steals America’s thunder! Note-worthy!

While some called it a ‘diwala’ after Diwali, others cracked husband-wife jokes.

How could Delhi smog not get a mention?

And comments on how the black market hoarders would be sleepless in the present scenario.

Stand up comics in India couldn’t contain their excitement either. While some cracked jokes on the uselessness of Rs 500 notes, others picked up still from films to correspond with the non-significance of currency notes.
