Funny, infuriating and heart-warming, videos and memes go viral when they touch the right chord. DT Next curates the top shares online that are going viral
In what is being considered a significant milestone on the path to understanding the universe, scientists have managed to capture the first ever photo of a supermassive black hole. But for some on Twitter, these lofty ideas held no importance - they were more immediately concerned with cracking jokes at the black holeâs expense. Soon after the black hole image was released online, netizens flooded social media with memes and jokes. While many found the pic a little underwhelming, others compared it to a vada, doughnut, Eye of Sauron from Lord Of The Rings, etc. The black hole image shows the boundary between light and dark around a black hole, called the event horizon.

Ben Stokes pulls off a Jonty Rhodes to dismiss Kedar Jadhav during RR vs CSK tie
Ben Stokes, the English all-rounder who was bought on by the Rajasthan Royals for a stiff Rs 14.5 crore had a rather mediocre stint so far this IPL season. Till Thursday that is. In the match against Chennai Super Kings where his team was defending a modest 151, the pressure was clearly on the home team to snap some quick wickets. That is when Stokes grabbed a blinder to get Kedhar Jadhav out. Such was the catch that many took to social media to pun on the famous âneither a bird nor a planeâ like from Superman, while a few others compared him with the top goalkeeper, David de Gea. What took the cake was the one where a cheetah leaping high to catch a bird, comparing the effort to that of Stokesâs.
Still thinking about that catch by Stokes! đ#HallaBol#RRvCSK#RRpic.twitter.com/NOgZKHYMznâ Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) April 11, 2019
