With the Supreme Court overturning the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and rejecting an appeal of a California gay marriage ban (Prop 8) earlier today, it’s been a banner day for the LGBT community.
The only people more jubilant were comedians and with every major news story they took to Twitter for their takes on the rulings. Here are some of our favorite reactions

As we celebrate today, let's spare a warm thought for our opponents, who have lost absolutely nothing. #DOMA

If I walk by a chapel in the next month and don’t see Bert and Ernie walking out holding hands, then today was for nothing. — Mike Lawrence (@TheMikeLawrence) June 26, 2013
SCOTUS: “Have you guys seen these Godfather movies? Soooo good!!!” EVERYBODY ELSE: “Yeah, no shit, where have YOU been?!” — Jonah Ray (@jonahray) June 26, 2013
Any straight person complaining about the Supreme Court striking down DOMA should be forced to hire a heterosexual wedding planner. — Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) June 26, 2013
I'm so happy the Supreme Court struck down that piece of shit Defense of Marriage Act. Some citizens still have to fight to be treated well.

Worth mentioning that all 4 Supreme Court Justices who voted to protect DOMA are men in long black dresses. — John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) June 26, 2013
DOMA’s been ruled unconstitutional! Now we just need SCOTUS to make weddings without open bars unconstitutional. — CC:Indecision (@indecision) June 26, 2013

Woke up, read about #DOMA, looked at the dog with a tear in my eye and said "Someday, buddy. Someday our time will come."

I was kind of hoping the Supreme Court would just strike down marriage in general. #DOMA
