But tonight, the last word on the big vice presidential debate comes from you. We were simply amazed at the avalanche of creative ander rev rant takes we saw everywhere today. And abc's sharyn alfonsi has been pouring through them. Reporter: It was so hard to choose just a few favorites because everyone had something to say. Joe biden's laugh alone got 500,000 mentions on twitter. And that was just the beginning. Reporter: To some, the debate sounded like a song. ♪ Hope and change ♪ ♪ turn his campaign into attack, blame and defame ♪ Reporter: This mashup, courtesy of the gregory brothers. ♪ This is a bunch of stuff ♪ ♪ this president doesn't bluff ♪ ♪ we got to tackle this debt crisis ♪ ♪ before it tackles us ♪ Reporter: But where they heard music, others heard bickering. On twitter, one user wrote, "joe biden would very much like for paul ryan to get off his lawn." That's a bunch of mularkey. Reporter: Another compared ryan to a nervous walmart manager. Biden to an irate customer who is friends with the store owner. Biden's wild gesturing and giggles were dissected online. Buzz-feed even naming the poses. Oh, my goodness. Reporter: From the redd foxx, the "knuckle-sammy" -- and the "two tickets to the puppet show" -- pose. All of it inspiring "the hulk biden" twitter account. Ryan didn't get off any easier. Huffington post noting his constant hydrating. Thousands commenting on the round-up of ryan sips. Sip after sip after sip. And while each candidate accused the other of flip-flopping, one viewer actually did. The candidates hair. Beltway pundits now drowned out be a greek chorus of comedians on their couch. Who know just because you call someone your friend. And I love my friend here. My friend. My friend. Reporter: Doesn't mean they are. I don't understand what my friend's talking about here. Reporter: It turns out biden said my friend more than a dozen times. That, plus the worlds mularkey and bunch of stuff have spawned one viewer to create something called a jocabulary list. 4 million tweets about the debate last night. And, as you well know, we get to do it all over again, coming up on tuesday night. That's the next presidential debate, 9:00 p.M. Eastern/6:00 pacific.
