Get you a man who looks at you like moths look at lamps.
There are some iconic duos whose influence on our society simply cannot be overstated. Milk and cereal...Penn and Teller...moth and lamp. Moth and lamp, aka the best meme of 2018, has arrived and it's so stupid it just might work.
People are crafting deeply layered jokes about moths' attraction to lamps and the simplicity of the premise is what makes them so damn good.
In case you thought the meme was some nuanced commentary on the human condition that you were somehow missing, I can assure you that it's not. Moths like lamps and that is that!
Get you a man who looks like you the way moths look at lamps.

"Like a moth to a flame," you feel me?
Me. I'm the moth.
Can anyone explain, using language, why I find these so damn funny? I'll wait.
