Thanks, internet! Moth memes are now a thing and god help us all

I'm getting in on this like a moth to a flame. 

The internet is an amazing, stupid, horrible, wonderful place. And this week, in its never-ending cycle of Sharable Content™ we are glad to inform you that moth memes are now a thing. A thing that's as hilarious as it is weird. And for that, we thank you internet. Never change. 

Without further ado, here are the dankest fkn moth memes we've seen so far.  

It all started -- like most internet bullshittery does -- on Reddit. Check out the creepy OG moth meme that started it all below.

Then, things started to get strange. Essentially, the joke is about moths and their love for artificial light. Particularly, lamps. (Don't think about it too much.) I, for one, welcome our new moth meme overlords.
