'Bath bombing' is the last great meme of 2014

“Love my new bath bomb from Lush.”

2014 HAS BEEN a strong year for memes. And in its final gasp, itโ€™s given us one last excellent one: the bath bomb.

Hereโ€™s how it began: at Christmas, a LOT of people got given Lush bath bombs.

Naturally, there was a slew of smug direct-from-the-bath tweets and Instagram pics.

So early this morning, Twitter user Megan Skalla decided to fight back. With the weapon of pizza.

(If youโ€™re reading on mobile, click into the tweet for the full effect.)

Her post was retweeted hundreds of times. So many, in fact, that a meme was born.

There were noodles.

There were eggs.

There were dishwasher tablets.


There were โ€˜dirt bath bombsโ€™

Oh, and there were actual bombs.

Basically, itโ€™s completely out of hand.

Sorry Lush.
