If you were wondering why the actor Lorenzo Lamas was trending on Twitter today, it all has to do with a pair of runaway llamas in suburban Phoenix. The two animals led police and civilians on a lunch-hour chase around the streets of Sun City before they were finally lassoed, reports AP. As you might imagine, the chaos spawned all kinds of memes and headlines of the "Lllamas on the Lloose" variety, notes Time. (Slate dubbed them "Thellma and Llouise.)
