Grumpy Cat’s Prehistoric Relatives

Grumpy Cat may be the spirit animal of the 21st century, but for all we know, the relatives of this sourpuss may have hated on humans since the dawn of mankind.

In this comic, artist Lonnie Easterling from Spud Comics proves that even cavemen knew of Grumpy Cat’s notorious crabbiness.

Deadmau5 Debuts ‘Phantoms Can’t Hang’ While Racing in Nyan Cat Ferrari

It’s a game of cat and Deadmau5 at the Gumball 3000 international motor rally, where the electronic music producer is driving through Europe in a half-million dollar “Purrari” — a Nyan Cat-themed Ferrari.

Amid his vehicular antics, Deadmau5 is world premiering a new song (listen below) exclusively on Mashable on Monday, one day before it becomes available on iTunes.

This is the final album version of “Phantoms Can’t Hang” from while(1<2), which comes out June 17. Fans have previously heard snippets and rough cuts of the track because Deadmau5, born Joel Thomas Zimmerman, routinely uploads works in progress online.

People can follow Deadmau5’s Gumball 3000 live-streamed #TeamPurrari journey at live.deadmau5.com to catch a glimpse of the meme-infused car.

“I only know one dude who would do this to a half-million dollar Ferrari: me,” he told Mashable via Skype chat earlier this year before Gumball 3000 got under way. “LAWL. Suck it, world. Nyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyan.”

Deadmau5 participates in Gumball 3000 on June 5 in Miami Beach, Florida.

Deadmau5 and his Purrari are on the European leg of the two-week, 3,000-mile trip, which includes stops in eight U.S. states and three countries in Europe.

Happy Birthday, Grumpy Cat: Today Is the Worst

The Internet’s favorite sourpuss turns 1 on Thursday, and we bet she is extra miserable on this merry occasion.

So how do you celebrate the birthday of a cat that hates everything? Misery loves company, of course. Besides, everyone knows birthdays are actually the worst, unless you’re 7 and theme parties — no, your toga party doesn’t count — are still considered cool.

There is so much hype that comes with birthdays, and it usually fails to meet expectations. So, here are 10 reasons why birthdays are simply terrible — which may just turn Grumpy Cat’s permanent frown upside down.

Happy birthday, Grumpy!

Viral Video Recap: Tiger Chases a Toddler and More

Warning: Dressing up like a tiger might make the fierce felines think you’re one of them.

In this week’s viral video recap, a captive tiger behind glass chases after a giggling child wearing a tiger suit. But that’s not the first time a fearless tyke has gotten attention from a jungle animal. Remember the video of a lion trying to eat a baby in a zebra-like hoodie (albeit through a glass window)? We’re starting to notice a pattern here.

Other viral videos this week include a man getting up-close to a group of sharks, puppies playing with bowling pins and a cat being silly in a box. Watch them all in the video, above.
