Now, the vice-presidential debate was an explosive evening, to say the least. Last Wednesday, Vice President Pence went head-to-head with his Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, in the year's first and only vice presidential debate.

As Pence, clearly oblivious to his visitor, continued with the debate.

It didn't take long for the memes to come rolling out...

And now, the internet is simply awash with puns and jokes surrounding the unfortunate mishap.

Who'd have thought one insect could create such a viral snowstorm?

As soon as the brave fly took its spot on Pence's silver head of hair, #FlyGate was quick to start trending on Twitter.

Twitter has been a #FlyGate minefield ever since...

And we have to admit, the reactions and memes have been pretty funny.

Heck, someone even made the fly its very own Twitter account.

We love the internet, sometimes.

It didn't take long for SNL to jump on the fly bandwagon, either.

Actor and comedian, Jim Carrey, who portrayed Joe Biden in SNL's debate sketch, quite hilariously dressed up as the fly in their weekend sketch.

However, regardless of the phenomenon of the fly...

Vice President Pence, who actually made the insect famous in the first place, has had his lips firmly sealed on the matter.

He has avoided the #FlyGate scandal entirely...

Well, until now, he has.

Yep, Pence has finally spoken!

Appearing for a Columbus Day interview with Fox News host, Dana Perino, the Vice-President finally gave his insight into #FlyGate.

And, miraculously, he took the whole thing in good spirits.

Pence, a father of 3 adult children, said he did not feel the fly and only learned of its existence from his kids after the debate. "I didn't know he was there!"

He explained:

"They all told me, ‘Dad, you did okay’, but they did tell me about the fly. It was a good laugh for all of us."

I suppose the only thing you can do is laugh, isn't it?
