"Those commandments were heavy, but God gave me an important job": The best of #BrianWilliamsMisremembers

The Internet weighed in on the "NBC Nightly News" host's faulty memory

Last week, "NBC Nightly News" host Brian Williams apologized for claiming for many years that he had been in a military helicopter forced to land amidst enemy fire in Iraq in 2003. In his apology, he said that he had actually been in the helicopter behind the one that was shot at, and had somehow "conflated" the two memories.

Twitter, our culture's collective comic-bullying conscience, had to weigh in. Now that we've given the Internet a nice long weekend for coming up with quips, here are some more of the best tweets from the mockery that is #BrianWilliamsMisremembers.
