As part of the United States Senate's $2 trillion rescue plan to help the country deal with the current economic climate, Americans who earn up to $99,000 a year will be receiving a stimulus check

Although the exact amount given out to each individual will vary on a sliding scale (the more you earn, the less you'll get), the government will dish out a maximum of $1,200 per person—a pretty hefty sum, if you ask us.

Rejoicing at the prospect of a few extra bucks in their accounts, folks across the country have taken to Twitter to announce what they'll be splurging on after receiving the cash. As expected, the tweets are oh-so-funny. And who doesn't need some belly-ache-inducing laughs these days? 

Below, find a collection of the most hilarious potential stimulus check purchases, from an indoor above-ground pool to SpongeBob art, a Star Wars fridge and, of course, luxury toilet paper.:
