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.

Books Turned LeVar Burton Evil

Books provide us with endless amounts of knowledge. Knowledge is power — but power is evil.

Just days after LeVar Burton and Reading Rainbow successfully funded the resurgence of the hit show, it has been revealed that we have made a terrible mistake.

This Funny or Die skit shows an updated version of the show’s mind-numbing theme song, proving that Burton and his catchy tune will probably kill you — or, worse, the entire world.

We trusted him with our children and more than 3 million dollars.

Music snobs may try to scoff at Gotye’s megahit “Somebody That I Used To Know,” but when the catchy tune comes on the radio for the 843,201,743rd time, they belt it out just like the rest of us singing superstars. Well, superstars in our own car and showers at least.

Sing it, ladies and gents — we’re not judging.

The average person doesn’t lounge on luxury yachts in the Caribbean or encounter a swarm of paparazzi while exiting Whole Foods, but believe it or not, celebrities are real people with real feelings. In a world where snark is celebrated, that fact can be easily forgotten — especially on Twitter, where 140-character jabs are met with favoriting and retweets.

Jimmy Kimmel asked celebrities to read a few of the tweet insults directed their way in a segment that might (emphasis on might) make you feel bad for Snooki.

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.

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)?

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.
