I’ve grown up with the Internet, and I’m still constantly amazed by how weird it can be. Case in point: The fact that #llamas was trending on Twitter today. Why? Because two llamas (which might actually be alpacas) escaped in Arizona today, and the attempt to wrangle them back became a national news event. No, really, two llamas running around was breaking news on every major network today. Slow news day?
The llamas were eventually caught, but the Internet didn’t stop freaking out about them and, honestly, it was hard not to start cracking up at my desk. I mean, there’s already a damn Buzzfeed quiz about it.
If you missed the frenzy, no worries, just check out these 17 hilarious reactions to the llama saga. What a time to be alive.
