News broke late Wednesday morning that former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner plans to write a book about his response to the financial crisis.

According to the Associated Press:

Geithner has not started writing the book and no timetable has been set for a deal, but an official with knowledge of his plans says the goal is for publication in 2014. The official asked not to be identified, saying that no formal announcement would be made until an agreement is reached with a publisher.

Within hours, jokes about possible book titles began trending nationwide on Twitter under the hashtag #geithnerbooktitles.

Many poked fun at Geithner, who has been criticized for being too cozy with Wall Street. Others riffed on the travails of the giant financial institutions—Lehman Brothers, Citi, AIG, Goldman Sachs, etc.—that weathered the crisis to varying success.

Here are 22 of the funniest tweets:
