Earthquake tickles funny bone of some readers

SOME people's sense of humor kicked in quickly after the impact of the 5.1 magnitude earthquake near Eidsvold was felt on the Fraser Coast.

Stuart Dunkley jumped on the Chronicle's Facebook page to joke that it was "a result of Fifty Shades of Grey" while another reader shared the lyrics from I Feel The Earth Move.

Darren Bilton said his fish tank was like a wave pool.

John Oxley was asleep in his electric recliner chair when the earthquake hit and "thought the motor had thrown a wobbly".

"Good to know it was not my recliner," he said.

Others shared a meme (pictured above) making fun of the lack of damage.
