Somehow, we found out today that former U.S. Senator and one-time awful presidential candidate Fred Thompson tells jokes on Twitter.

"AZ woman ran over husband w/ SUV because he didn't vote for Romney," one of Thompson's alleged jokes says. "Well, on the bright side, Obamacare covers treadmark removal."

Take that, Daniel Solomon, the Gilbert man who may be permanently disfigured after being run over by his wife, who blamed him for President Obama's re-election.

If it weren't for occasionally appearing on television sets to con old people into buying things, we would've assumed Thompson had just given up on trying to entertain people.

However, now that we see he has a Twitter account, we can share with you how genuinely insulting Thompson's jokes are to the world of humor.

Below, find a few examples of Thompson's jokes, just from the past couple of weeks. Feel free to use this information to feel better about your own lame jokes, and make Thompson feel like an asshole.
