Twitter erupts with solar eclipse memes

The first total solar eclipse for 99 years swept America yesterday, with several states witnessing the incredible natural phenomenon as the moon blocked out the sun.

But this once in a lifetime opportunity did not impress everyone, and comics flocked to Twitter to share their own version of the total eclipse, with beer and pugs.

Videos appeared of people 'eclipsing' their white cats with their black ones, and their white pugs with the black pugs. 

One clever video had a bottle of Sol being eclipsed by a bottle of Blue Moon beer. 

This video was shared across Twitter, as the owners of two pugs joked that their eclipse was their black pug moving across their white one
