The Cubs won the World Series last night, ending their 108-year drought. Fans everywhere exploded (including Bill Murray), but Twitter captured the world’s excitement and humor perfectly.

President Obama invited the team to the White House:

It happened: @Cubs win World Series. That's change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave?

Sideline reporter Craig Sager: “You gotta think positive.”

Congrats to the @Cubs and my Dad for finally being able to cash in after 35 years. #FlyTheW #LivingOutLoud pic.twitter.com/LgpVYMujtJ

A new meme was proposed:

A few people cracked dinosaur jokes:

From one Great Lakes tyrannosaur to another- congrats on the @Cubs championship @SUEtheTrex (& #Jane @BurpeeMuseum)! #RallyTogether pic.twitter.com/XLrbXI7J6N

And made “then and now” comparisons, from 1908 to 2016:

"The Cubs winning is the greatest thing since sliced bread. That's because sliced bread hadn't been invented yet in 1908."

Non-Cubs fans put the victory into terms they understood:

Pretty jealous of Cubs fans today. Can’t wait to feel this way when Haim releases their second album after 108 years.

The National Zoo congratulated the team appropriately:

⚾️Paw-five to the @Cubs from our cub! #WorldSeries pic.twitter.com/2cgc4DyqNv

A dad voiced his concern for his child:

I think even my 4-year-old is hung over this morning. #cubs

The Chicago Tribune gave a fitting full, front-page tribute to the team’s win:

Marty McFly mused over a small error:

Only off by a year, not bad. Congrats @Cubs. This is so heavy. #FlyTheW

— Michael J. Fox (@realmikefox) November 3, 2016

But no worries, “Back to the Future” explained why the movie was one year off:

The space-time continuum was disrupted by the 1994 baseball strike, causing this alternate reality where the @Cubs win in 2016, not 2015. pic.twitter.com/cvlftTtWfT
