For years, The New York Times has prided itself on their journalistic integrity and ability to produce “all the news that’s fit to print.”
The Times has often been criticized for being smug and a little late with the, well, times. But this little facet, my friends, is what makes certain corrections so hilarious. Because between the politics of New York City and, well, the world at large, you can’t expect the grey lady to exactly be in the know when it comes to the internet.
Luckily for the Times, their latest correction is not of the reputation-destroying kind, but it does induce a little chuckle from those who spend too much time on YouTube.
Here’s the context of the correction:
Here’s the correction:
Not even the New York Times can get all the viral cat videos straight and for that, I will take pride in knowing that I am a little superior to the Grey Lady when it comes to cat videos.
While it’s a great contender for Correction of the Year, I don’t think misspelling Maru will ever beat this gem from last 2011:
Getting Fluttershy and Twilight Sparkle mixed up? What is this, New York Times? Amateur hour? Get your shit together.
I love Christmas stories as much as anyone, especially The Night Before Christmas. But I always appreciated a rendition with modern sensibilities. That’s why Comediva wrote a whole new story called How the LOLcats Saved Christmas. In this version, the LOLcats stop Tard the Grumpy Cat from attacking Santa Claus. Guest appearances included Henri the Existential Cat, Maru and the Keyboard Cat. If the adorable story doesn’t get you, then the LOLcat pictures will.
A couple days ago we were graced with a new grumpy cat named Tard. It’s often difficult to tell whether the furry feline is happy, angry or a combination of the two. Though we’re not quite ready to give up Maru or Henri as our favourite Internet cats, if Tard keeps up her grumpy misdemeanour, they could have some fierce competition. I’d love to see an Internet cat convention with these three stars meeting for the first time. Someone please make it happen.
Maru is probably the most famous cat on the Internet. We like to think it’s because he just doesn’t care what anyone thinks — Maru just does Maru. In this epic battle, the furry feline swipes the ground in an epic two and a half minute battle.
When I first heard about the Internet Cat Video Film Festival, I’m pretty sure my entire body froze and I shot into cotton candy clouds like a rocket fuelled on rainbow sparkles. Well that’s how I felt inside but I actually looked more like this:
Finding and watching cat videos is a favourite pastime of mine. Even after I finish hunting for them at andPOP, my cat-obsessed friend and I share our faves via Gmail, like two old cat ladies who collect kitten paraphernalia (I don’t actually because that would be CRAY).
As andPOP previously reported, Minneapolis is holding a cat video film festival on Aug. 30 as part of Open Field, the Walker Art Gallery’s summer project. You can vote for your fave videos until July 30 online. While I don’t want to sway any of you in a particular direction, these are some of my personal faves. Share yours under the comment section!
Five classic cat videos:
Most dramatic: Angry cats dubbed (aka you will snot laugh)
Best action: Kitty Corlis “Grinding the Crack” Read more…
It’s that time of year again when we clear out all our stale winter fashions and make way for fresh spring clothes. Maru the cat felt a little left out of the transition but when she saw this paper bag her eyes lit up. She slowly tunneled her way through the bag until her head fit through. Of course, there are no arms but not all new styles are practical. Looking stylish comes at a price,
