You’ve got to admit this: The Internet will not be complete without memes.
More than just a form of entertainment, these memes also help you get through when life throws you a curveball—thanks to the meme lords who #blessedt us with Kanye West memes, Nicolas Cage’s “Cage rage” memes, Grumpy cat, Doge, and so much more.
And now, netizens have found a new addition to the “meme archives” and of course, another reason to log on every day.
If you think only cute stuff can reside on your screen, then you might have to reconsider that as this winged creature appears to be the “flavor of the month.”
And no, don’t even try to do something about it.
The moth craze started when Reddit user u/No_Reason27 posted a close-up photo of what seems to be a very large moth outside their window.
If you stare at it long enough, the moth looks like an owl lurking near the window. The picture of the innocent moth made the internet crazy which led internet users to create their own versions of moth memes.
Since moths are attracted to light, most of the memes show the insect’s “unconditional love” for lamps.
Moths be like:

It has been two months now and people still can’t get over the moth’s picture. Some even went ahead to make their unique set of memes:

It’s crazy how such a random thing like this moth could be an “online sensation” in a few days! To the extent that somebody even made an Instagram account called @moth_memes that is dedicated to provide us nothing but “mothy memes.”
While some may find the memes horrible rather than hilarious, it’s still impressive how these people were able to draw inspiration from an innocent moth.
