Eating tide pods, FTW.


If you can somehow believe we're only in the second month of 2018, here's your reminder that a Super Bowl performer has already decided to take a selfie with a 13-year-old in the middle of a performance (thanks, Justin Timberlake) and two new Kardashian children have entered the world.

The Michaela Coel Scene from Black Mirror

BAFTA award-winning actress Michaela Coel appeared in the Netflix original series Black Mirror, and people couldn't stop making a meme out of the scene of her in the first episode of season four "USS Callister" where she plays Shania Lowry.

Blue Ivy Telling Her Parents to Settle Down at the Grammys

Another meme-worthy moment from the biggest night in music. Six-year-old Blue Ivy is clearly the most dominant member of the Carter household, advising her parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z to calm down while applauding a performance at the 2018 Grammys.

The Super Bowl "Selfie Kid"

When Justin Timberlake stopped to take a selfie with a young kid during the Super Bowl half time show, fans lost it (for obvious reasons), and "selfie kid" became a meme sensation within minutes.

Of course, Ellen then surprised selfie kid Ryan McKenna, 13, with a phone call from Justin Timberlake on her show. (We can't tell if he was more emotional from the phone call or Timberlake in the flesh.) "Yes, all of the memes...I've seen those," he tells Ellen.
