Who won the Vice Presidential debate last night? Well, at first it was hard to tell. Everything seemed to be going as expected—some wearisome interruptions, disregard for the moderator, a vague haze of bad vibes... And then it happened. About an hour into the debate, a fly landed on Mike Pence's head and lingered there for exactly two minutes and three seconds. Did the internet lose its damn mind? You bet it did. And a lot can happen in just two minutes—hundreds (yes, hundreds) of 'Pence fly'-themed Twitter accounts sprouted into existence, '#fly' instantly soared to Twitter's number one trending topic, a fly face filter appeared on Snapchat, and then of course, there were memes.
With impressive haste, the internet gave us a mountain of memes, tweets, videos, and think-pieces to wake up to. Don't worry, we've narrowed the buzz down to a handful of highlights so that your brain doesn't fly out of your head.
