Memes & Tweets in Celebration of This Summer's Horny Cicada Invasion

Cicadas are weird creatures. While most species emerge annually, there are some special species in the US that dwell underground for 13 or 17 years before coming up to mate. These groups of the insects are referred to as "broods," and there are a whole lot of them. So many of them hatch at once (to ensure a number survive) that their emergence is actually being picked up by weather radars.

While the insects are harmless, there are a lot of people who would rather they stay in the ground. They're loud. They squirt. And they're bad for your pets. Unfortunately for the cicada haters in the Eastern United States, Brood X is here, and they're not shy. The billion bug brood has even played a hand in pestering the President and delayed the White Housepress plane ahead of Biden's first foreign trip. To some people, the hubbub may seem ridiculous - but one way we're enjoying this entomological event is through memes and tweets. For the next few weeks there are bound to be a lot of 'em, but we've put together our favorites right here for some easy scrolling.

A Menagerie Of Funny Animal Memes & Moments

As the states try to segue into some kind of normalcy by opening up businesses and encouraging people to "get out there" (masked or vaccinated) we're reminded of one blaringly painful fact. That we hate humans. Loud. Rude. Entitled. Oblivious. The moment we step outside or onto the train, the misanthropy starts bubbling over, making us wish we'd stayed at home. In these moments, it's beneficial to flat out pretend that humans don't exist. And with the sheer volume of animal memes on the internet, we know we can pretend for quite a while. They're so much better (and cuter) than humans. It makes sense they'd make better meme subjects, too.

27 Dank Ant Memes Because Why The Hell Not

First of all, we love cat memes, dog memes, bird memes, and even frog memes. But the species that rule the planet get very little love in the meme-o-sphere. We're talking about ants. Did you know there are one quadrillion ants living on Earth? That's literally 1,000,000,000,000,000 ants. If all the ants in the world combined to create one giant super-organism, they could collectively carry the whole of humanity on their back. So let's give it up for our ant overlords and enjoy some spicy ant-themed memes, just for the hell of it.

No Need To Panic Over 'Murder Hornets,' According To This Informative Thread

Recently it was announced that the Asian giant hornet, otherwise known as the "murder hornet" had been spotted in North America for the first time earlier this month. While many of us have been downright panicking over it, others have been doing their research, like this woman, who decided to draft up a Facebook post of the misconceptions about our new little yellow friend. We hope it puts your mind a little more at ease!

'Murder Hornets' Are 2020's Latest Little Gift To Us

Is anyone even phased by anything anymore? At this point, news could break that an asteroid is barreling toward planet earth and literally no one would bat an eye. It seems that May's little "surprise" for us is the Asian giant hornet, or as it's more commonly being referred to, the "murder hornet" that was spotted in North America for the first time just a few months ago. Luckily these guys typically aren't aggressive toward humans, but they are known to decapitate honey bees with their horrifyingly large claws. On the bright side, perhaps this will encourage people to stay inside so we can tackle the pandemic going on? Thanks 2020!

Entitled Single Mom Tries To Scam Seller, Gets Caught Red-Handed

Why is it always the "mommy" types who seem like the most entitled, rude people? Being a mom doesn't automatically mean you get handed things in life for free. Granted, who knows whether this lady is actually a single mom like she claims. 

Regardless, her insufferable demeanor provides for the best kind of schadenfreude!
