By now, you've heard that the 89th Academy Awards ended with an M. Night Shyamalan caliber twist when La La Land was mistakenly named Best Picture only to have the producers jump up on stage and tell the world that Moonlight actually won. It wasn't until the very end of the Oscars that we finally got our meme of the night thanks to what some are calling Envelopgate, and now it's taking off in full force.

All over the internet, people are taking the infamous envelope—which proved the error occurred backstage rather than being the fault of presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway—and Photoshopping it to hilarious effect. Some of them are political, some are random af, but they're all hilarious. 

Here are a few of our favorite Envelopegate memes so far.
