Around the world Sunday, people waited anxiously for the results of Egypt's groundbreaking presidential election.
And the payoff was a long time coming – especially when Egypt's election commission began its announcement of the results, but took an hour to get around to telling who had won. That prompted the Twittersphere to poke some fun at the long, long announcement.
Here's a sampling of some of the things people were tweeting:

Oh, why, why, why, do we always have to suffer an epic speech before we get to the bloody point. #Egypt.—
