Moth Memes are Taking Over the Internet and They are the Stuff of Nightmares

"Like moths to a flame."

Moth Memes are Taking Over the Internet and They are the Stuff of Nightmares
"Like moths to a flame."

Moths, and memes. Two words which begin with the letter m: except you love one, while you hate the other. And it's definitely not the memes you hate. What if they went together? Well, the worst has just come true.

If you are a meme enthusiast, you must already have seen the latest one to do the rounds - the moth meme. The meme usually features a very scary looking moth that just can't find the lamp it is looking for.

And just like moths to a flame, you are still drawn to the meme.

It all started after a Redditor posted a picture of a moth creeping outside his window. The ominous looking insect spurred many memes which, unfortunately, have not stopped. People have come up with all new kinds of memes to fit into this format - of moths being attracted to light.

Moth memes are inspiring poetry, as well.


And an entire account dedicated to moth memes, called My Precious Lamp.

Even though some of us wish the creepy looking moth would disappear off our timelines, we guess the moth meme is here to stay.
