After NASA dropped hints about an "exciting new discovery about the Moon", the big news is finally here: the Moon is wet.

Or more precisely, there is water on the sunlit surface of the Moon.

As scientists and astronauts consider the actual implications of these findings, the rest of the world couldn't help but make jokes and share memes about the discovery. (Although, NASA couldn't help but join in on the fun.)

Some Twitter users, including The Washington Post, used this as an opportunity to reference a viral 2018 tweet about the Moon being haunted, Know Your Meme reported.

And of course, following the popularity of the song “WAP”, there have been plenty of jokes about a “wet a** moon,” also known as “WAM”.

The news also inspired other song parodies:
