Cool Bug Facts
Cool bug facts is an exploitable image macro meme. This type of image contains a 3D-modeled figure of a goofy caterpillar, and a random text that is purposefully not in coherence with the image.
The text also often conveys an aggressive or menacing tone, making the whole of the meme satirically comical.
