The Internet is funniest when cartoon memes go viral. A quick scroll down your timeline will likely unveil Mr. Krabs in a state of confusion or Kermit sipping a cup of Lipton Tea.

From uneven cat eyes to awkward Sephora encounters, below are five Arthur memes that perfectly capture our beauty woes. Share if you agree!
