Aid workers and journalists in Haiti are occasionally finding some moments of levity.

Everyone's favourite press briefing so far was when the Red Cross talked about their work
with Haitian prisons. A visit to the main prison found that the entire structure had
collapsed, with a few bodies remaining. And what was the Red Cross' conclusion?
The spokesman said, straightfaced,"It appears that the inmates took the opportunity to leave the facility" There was a pause. And then the entire press briefing collapsesd with laughter.

Our favourite way to think about Twitter, so far.
