This morning, news broke that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is hospitalized with fractured ribs after she fell in her Supreme Court office. We, like the rest of you, are panicked at this news. RBG is a Jewish icon and a powerful progressive voice we need on the Supreme Court. She can’t leave us yet!
Twitter users feel similarly. Here are the best get well soon RBG jokes to make you feel better:
1. We have ribs.
If Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs ribs I have like dozens of them that I'm not using, let's do this

2. Kate McKinnon is available.
[throwing a robe over Kate McKinnon and hastening her onto the bench] folks, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is fine

I think I fractured three ribs reading that tweet about Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

5. Superheroes, now is the time to reveal yourselves.
Starting a GoFundMe to send RBG to Wakanda and manufacture her new ribs from vibranium.

6. She will be okay.
RBG falls in her office, gets up and goes home, middle of the night thinks, this doesn’t feel so hot, goes to the hospital, and discovers that she has THREE BROKEN RIBS.
She’s in the hospital but will be fine. Because she’s a fricking badass. #notorious

Somebody put Ruth in a life-sized amount of bubble wrap and don’t let her out until this regime is over. Thank you.

8. Praying to Ruth for Ruth sounds about right.
I don't believe in a higher power, so I'm basically just praying TO Ruth Bader Ginsburg FOR Ruth Bader Ginsburg. https://t.co/hNMkgQiUO2

9. Alyssa Milano, we see you.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays.

10. Not sure if this is a RBG-related tweet, but we’re taking it as one:

11. But, for real:
boy I hope RBG’s close friends and family are extremely offline and can focus 100% of their emotional energy on their 85 year old loved one and not our shitty and genuine panic jokes
