  1. This is All Your Fault: “Gangnam Style” First YouTube Video in History to Reach One Billion Views

    Yeah, hey, thanks a lot, everybody. Due to your insatiable appetite for all things insipid and obnoxiously viral on the Internet, the total number views for South Korean rapper -- and we use that term loosely -- PSY's "Gangnam Style" music video has skyrocketed to over one billion views and will likely continue to grow unless we as a people actually stop sharing it with everyone and their grandmother. Just so you know, pop culture is a part of our legacy, and legacies have a habit of outlasting the people that spawned it. Now future generations will recognize us for our inexplicable admiration for a man that enjoyed dancing like a horse.

    Nyan Cat, the rainbow cat meme we all know and love, was originally an image created by Chris Torres. It is known. Torres based the lovable image on his cat, Marty. Unfortunately for Torres, Marty was diagnosed with feline infectious peritonitis -- basically a death sentence for cats. This was only a week ago. Last night, Marty passed away in Torres' arms, bringing an end to the cat's unexpected celebrity status.

  5. Behold: The Periodic Table of Memes

    With all the variation that has sprung up around internet memes, there was bound to come a time when someone would finally organize them into one, easy-to-use chart. Now, the creation of deviantArt user OohLaLa423 doesn't cover every possible permutation, nor every trend, but it is big. Really big. It's also conveniently organized, showing the progression on the vertical axis, and when possible, grouping them by type. At least, I think that's what's going on.

  9. Running Ice Cream Man Unites All Memes

    This poor, innocent man has become the latest victim to the Internet's insatiable need for PhotoShop-driven laughs. Caught in one of the sudden and brutal winter storms the man, now identified as Zach Burroughs, sought shelter for him and his frozen treat. Perhaps it was the apparent devotion to his ice cream or because he looked more like a time traveler from next summer, Burroughs has become the darling of Reddit and is the foci of many a meme mashup. Burroughs remains lukewarm about his newfound popularity, but apparently even more blasé about the foodstuff that catapulted him to internet stardom. As he said to The Washington Post, who originally ran his picture:
    “I don’t even like ice cream that much,” said Burroughs, an attorney who works on 15th Street NW.
    The WaPo also has a meme post-mortem, giving us a peak behind the curtain of what makes an internet star. But more importantly is your fix of funny pictures.

  10. Lord in Internet Heaven Save Us, Boxxy is Back

    For the uninitiated, or for those who are generally safe from Internet Happenings, Boxxy is a girl who posted rambly videos on the Internet a couple years ago and, due to the somewhat adorable, somewhat annoying, seemingly forced, over-exaggerrated personality she exudes, she became an Internet phenomenon, largely supported (going so far as being called their queen) and hated by Internet forum 4chan. Her supporters and detractors were so fervent in their beliefs that the situation between the two parties ended up crashing 4chan. In an odd move after becoming Internet-famous, she actually bowed out of the limelight, until a few months ago when she posted an auction of an InuYasha bag on eBay.

    Since her eBay venture, all was quiet on the digital front--until now. On January 10, 2011, Boxxy posted the above video with a title that some may perceive to be a dire warning: "Things are about to get intense."
