Final Presidential Debate: The 20 Best Celebrity Tweets

Last week's binders are this week's horses and bayonets.

President Barack Obama's sarcastic knock of Governor Mitt Romney's views on the military budget — saying the military has fewer "horses and bayonets" and Navy ships than it previously did because of changing needs — was the most tweeted-about topic of last night's third and final presidential debate.

The debate overall generated 6.5 million tweets, according to official Twitter statistics — the lowest number of all three debates. The "horses and bayonets" comment alone sparked more than 105,000 tweets and also immediately spawned a parody account, @horsesbayonette.

Weeds Series Finale: Did It All Go Up in Smoke?

The Botwins — if we can still call them that — said farewell Sunday, with a Weeds series finale that a stoner might describe as... a total bummer, man.

For those who have stayed with Weeds over its eight ever-morphing seasons, it was a nice nugget of nostalgia to hear the original version of "Little Boxes" before the final hour. From there, we flashed eight-odd years into the future, as noted by Stevie's impending Bar Mitzvah. The finale featured several fun, but too-brief cameos from former cast members who breezed in and out as we stumbled toward the main question we hoped this finale might answer: Has Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) learned from her mistakes? And if so, where does she go from here?

I don't mean the Oscars, I mean literally. My pants and shoes have been stolen," he continued to quip on Twitter. But Brooks' omission wasn't the only big shocker. Here are our top surprises and snubs:
