Monday night's presidential debate was bound to inspire parody Twitter accounts, like those seen before with other major events. Remember all the Angelina Jolie's leg accounts when the actress jutted out her limb during the 2012 Oscars?

And the first satirical Twitter account to pop up was also body related. Debate-watchers noting presidential candidate Donald Trump sniffing often while speaking not only delivered a few questioning tweets about the cause, but more than one person created an entire Twitter account around the new meme.

Most accounts had only a handful of followers and tweets, but the account @TrumpSniff quickly gained more than 1,000 followers, and offered up everything from jokes about Hillary Clinton's "Trumped up-trickle-down economics" to images of Trump with well-placed Kleenex to even a survey.
