A fly on Mike Pence's head steals the show at the vice-presidential debate

BUZZ NOTE:  There is a video with this seed that shows the fly on Pence's head through the time he is speaking, including being told MANY times by the moderator in her more sweet polite way to SHUT UP.  It can be accessed by clicking the "SEEDED CONTENT" link, to take you to the source article.

TORONTO -- Despite the distancing measures in place at Wednesday night's U.S. vice-presidential debate, one uninvited guest got a little too close to one of the candidates.

Mid-debate, a fly landed on the head of Vice-President Mike Pence, who seemed unfazed or unaware that the insect was there. 

Ian Cull, a reporter for NBC's Bay Area affiliate, confirmed on Twitter after checking the footage that the fly sat atop Pence's head for two minutes and three seconds before flying away. 

After the debate, Twitter was buzzing with jokes as "The Fly" became a trending topic. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden got in on the fun, tweeting a photo of himself with a swatter asking supporters to help his campaign "fly." The fly even got its own parody Twitter account, tweeting out videos of pop star Miley Cyrus' song "Fly on the Wall" and joking about releasing a memoir. 

Here's a roundup of some of the best tweets of the night:

For those who didn't understand the tweet mentioning the actor Jeff Goldblum, he played the scientist who got turned partly into a fly in the remake of the movie "The Fly". 

Anybody got any more good ones to add to those tweets?

According to the Free Dictionary:

there are no flies on someone

If you say there are no flies on someone, you mean that they are quick to understand a situation and are not  easily deceived.  Oh, he was a smart one, all right. There were no flies on him.

Flies - the Trump administration - an infestation of pests - it kind of  fits into place now.
