First up is a creepy Reddit story that, despite originally being posted years ago, is making the internet rounds again thanks to TikTok. It features a glitch in the matrix, a creepy lamp, and a plot worthy of a horror movie.

TikTok is now obsessed (videos with #thelampstory have amassed over 40 million views), with people recreating the spooky scenario.

And some are even pointing out their own "lamp moments."

In funnier news, internet icon George Santos has officially been expelled from Congress and Twitter had the best reactions.
