A fine rain misted London's 5m-odd Tube passengers as they began the long trudge to work during today's 24-hour Tube strike.

Say what you like about the capital's commuters, but at least they retained their sense of humour - on Twitter, anyway, where hundreds made their feelings known.

Here are the best reactions:

The first rule of #TubeStrike: be prepared

The second rule: keep a stiff upper lip

Always make sure you have your story straight

If you can, work from home

... or try a different mode of transport

There's no point getting your hopes up

Just accept that out-of-towners will gloat

... but remember to think of others

Try to look for a bright side

... because you never know - you might be pleasantly surprised...
