If you haven't checked your social media in the past few days, you might have missed out on the boom of the latest internet meme trend: Moths. Like, literally just pictures of moths. Kids these days (definitely also adults) are obsessed with photoshopping or captioning a photo of a giant moth that originated on Reddit, usually with funny references to how moths love lamps. Why? Well it's funny. That's all. If you're not familiar with this craze, you're probably scratching your human head right now wondering why this could ever be considered funny — so, in an effort to help, I've rounded up a list of the best moth memes and tweets for your education. Welcome to the future, and you're welcome.

While most people might not know a lot about moths, one thing that surely comes to mind when many think about them is their attraction to light. The proverb "like a moth to a flame" is used to describe an attraction between two things. In the age of endless obsession (whether it's pizza every day, or Ariana Grande's Sweetener album on repeat), millennials understand the power of a one track mind. The allure of a lamp for a moth can be easily transposed into a very real aspect of human nature. Substitute a lamp for your own obsession and suddenly you and moths have everything in common — see how easily that works? Swap out the lamp for a bucket of fro-yo and moths are now #relatable. But in order to really "get" this meme craze, you'll have to check out the creative lengths people have taken to depict this comparison. Here are a few of my favorites:

That's exactly what we love about the moth meme right? Moths have a one track mind, they're just trying to score some lamp, can you blame them?

Did Ariana Grande know that her new song would be an anthem for moths everywhere? Moths everywhere are getting turnt to this uplifting promise of a song.

Too bad the lamp didn't fall on the moth's car though. And no, we're not done with this meme, not even close.
