NEW YORK (WFAN) — The jokes started almost immediately.

After it became apparent that Amar’e Stoudemire punched the glass panel of a fire extinguisher following the Knicks 104-94 loss to the Heat on Monday, comments flooded Twitter.

We’ve posted some of the best below:

-@netw3rk: “You are really dumb” – Me signing Amar’e’s cast

-@jimrome: Amar’e Stoudemire punched the glass to a fire extinguisher?! Use the axe, man. That’s what it’s there for.

-@MikeSielskiWSJ: Well, in fairness, it WAS an emergency.

-@LoHudKnicks: Woodson: “I would prefer not to talk about STAT’s hand. Mostly because it has been amputated. Gonna leave this to the doctors.”

-@jasonWSJ: Well, did Amar’e put out the locker room fire, or not?;  Thank goodness all fire extinguisher fights are best-out-of-7.

-@PTI, and others: To his credit, Amare was attacking the glass.

-@EricStangel: Amar’e Stoudemire throws punch, cuts hand in locker room. Steiner Sports selling bloody fire extinguisher for $2,199…

-@TheBigLead: Hope it doesn’t hurt his trade value

@russbengtson: Amar’e may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he sure knows how to find it and punch it, whatever it is.

@jdubs88: I’m thinkin this may be a “broken glass half full” moment for Knicks. Better w/out Amar’e?
