On the morning of August 1, 2013, a baby was born on the platform at the L'Enfant Plaza Metro station. In honor of that baby, named Amir Mason (and not, I'm sorry to tell you, Pierre), here's a look back at some of the best jokes tweeted about that unusual situation. Happy birthday, Amir, and thanks for giving me the excuse to trot out the #metrobaby hashtag one more time. 

Original post below. 

Well, here's something you don't see every day: Metro Transit Police tweeted Thursday morning that a baby had been born on the platform at the L'Enfant Plaza Metro station. Within minutes, #metrobaby was trending as Washingtonians delivered (hehe) their best jokes about the occasion. See below for some examples—and leave yours in the comments.

    But the real question is, was it conceived there?

    I heard she was heading to the Judiciary Square stop.....so she could get to the Department of Labor.

    Why are we not talking about the fact that the child was born at the station called "The Child Plaza"?
