There is nothing humorous about the 10 Freeway. Or is there?

America's fourth longest interstate took the on-ramp right into social media earlier this month with a witty, cheeky, Los Angeles-centric Twitter account that is as heavy on "your mom" jokes as the morning commute.

The I-10 wants you to know that they won't let you tread on him (or her): "Teaming up with the 110 and the 405 to pwn some n00bs during rush hour!!! With our powers combined....." The busy freeway also seems to know who we are: "Why am I not #1 on this list?!?! Prepare to feel my wrath, LA!!! RT @LAist:7 Reasons (and photos) to Love LA: http://bit.ly/90Ipc1" (Thanks for the link...and, believe us, we feel your wrath on evenings when we need to make it to Santa Monica by dinner time.)

What other L.A. landmark needs a cheeky Twitter account?
