It's no secret that Detroit has been in rough shape for several decades. A situation that began with the decline of the auto industry has culminated with the announcement that the city is officially filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, making them the largest U.S. city to do so.

And whenever anything happens that's too depressing to think about, we make a bunch of jokes about it. Here are some funny -- as well as some serious and heartfelt -- tweets about The D's financial probs.
