It's the day of the total solar eclipse, and like many overly anticipated events, there are naturally a ton of hilarious memes to follow. Literally, there's pretty much a meme for everything, so not even the solar eclipse was safe from people's meme creativity. Memes are just what we do nowadays, especially when we're trying to decipher an incredibly strenuous or historical situation. So, it was only a matter of time before social media blew up with some of the funniest solar eclipse memes.
We need to laugh at everything it seems. The solar eclipse will be happening differently for those in its path, so it's important to plan your course of action and see how and where it will be closest to you. Just make sure you aren't being incredibly swindled by a well-crafted meme that's feeding you some funny but invalid information; that's the only downside to memes. Some can be majorly convincing that they begin to circulate invalid information. At least we got a good laugh though, right? It's almost expected that the second most entertaining thing about the solar eclipse will be people's interpretation of the events, portrayed in those endless memes on social media.
