Sloths and cats own the internet. The amount of memes surrounding these two cute, furry animals come in buckets, and it seems like we can’t get away from them.
Sloths are the most gifable, filmable, photogenic animals out there clearly – either that or Kristin Bell started a craze with her sloth obsession.
Thank you Kristin Bell for bombarding the internet with sloth lovers.
I may never understand the hype about cats and sloths, but what I do get is that memes are unfairly clever and highly addictive. I can assure you if you find the sassy sloth meme, you will be laughing for an hour instead of doing what you are supposed to be doing.
Without further ado,
26 Sassy Sloths for your viewing pleasure
Community and Mad Men’s Alison Brie is a flawless individual. Asides from being ridiculously funny and a great actress (can you believe she plays Pete Campbell’s wife on Mad Men?!), she can sing, do the Charleston and do really good impersonations of popular Internet memes. Watch as she imitates Grumpy Cat, Overly Attached Girlfriend and does a little Hadouken-ing of her own.
Hey, Alison! Can we be BFFs already? (Don’t worry JLaw, Imaginary BFF is a tier.)
To mark the 30th anniversary of the Steven Spielberg classic Jurassic Park, the dinosaur movie will return to theatres for an exclusive 3D release. Will the park’s t-rex and velociraptor look scary in 3D? Probably. But to help keep those nightmares at bay, here are the 10 best Jurassic Park-related bits and gags the internet has to offer.
1. Theme Song (Melodica Cover)
3. Beatles dressed as the characters
4. Dino Photobooth
5. This Jeff Goldblum painting
Do you remember Zeddie Little? He was the original ridiculously photogenic guy who was snapped looking fabulous while running a marathon. And yes, every part of that sentence is absolutely unfair because NO ONE EVER looks good while running. If you try and take a picture of me running, I’d be derping 99 per cent of the time or will have passed out on the ground in the last 1 percent because I don’t run.
Anyways, this unfairness also seems to extend to jiu-jitsu master Clark Gracie. As far as memes go, we know we’re just beating a dead horse here but dear god, WHY DOES YOUR FACE LOOK LIKE THAT? This is just unfair on every level. Where’s that weird contorted “I MUST DEFEAT MY ENEMY FACE?”
Brace yourselves, folks. A new meme is coming.
And his name is Grumpy Toad. Soon we’ll find out that his name is actually Lester and he lives in South American Zoo. One time, after just minutes of begging, a girl finally kissed him. Lo and behold, he did not turn into the prince the fairytales have taught him he would turn into, hence the grumpy face. Now he is forever scarred by the way children’s stories have lied to him.
I’m joking. I don’t actually know where grumpy toad is from or what his name is. I do know that you could literally turn his frown upside down and he becomes Happy Toad:
How do we feel about this, Grumpy Cat?
Yup, thought so.
Sorry, Grumpy Cat but you’ve been replaced by your human doppelgänger.
While we doubt she’s as fun and condescending as you are, we do like the fact that hey, she’s someone’s grandma. She’s probably given that lucky person loads of cash like any grandma would. What do you have to offer us, Grumpy Cat? Catnip? Sorry, not as enticing.
Thanks to The Frogman (seriously, why are you so funny?), we now have Grumpy Grandma to ruin all the fun.
The Oscars only happen once a year but 364 days of that year, the people of tumblr rant and cry over how the Academy continues to unjustly snub Leonardo DiCaprio. Has The Academy never seen Inception? Shutter Island? Revolutionary Road? Blood Diamond? TITANIC?
Yes, if you were wondering, I am that person on tumblr who cries about this brilliant man’s lack of awards and don’t even get me started on the fact Johnny Depp has never won one either. My fingers are crossed for Leo to finally win all the awards for his role in The Great Gatsby — well all know he will own the part. Go check out the trailers, I promise you will not regret it.
Anyways, check out some of tumblr’s hysterical reactions last night to the lack of Leonardo Dicaprio at the festivities.
Hours after a meteor struck Russia, Redditors and Tumblr users have already started making the obligatory Russian Meteor memes. The meteor shattered about 30-50 kilometers above the ground and injured more than 1100 people.
Do you think the memes are too soon? Here are some of the ones trending online right now. [Daily Dot]

Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone, especially those who much rather enjoy the single life. Some reasons why one is single is: they can’t date their favourite celebrity, they can’t date the internet, or they can’t date themselves. The media basically showered us all with high expectations that are almost impossible to meet. If you believe all of that, plus what you’ve seen in Disney films, good luck finding the special one. [heavens-1n-your-eyes]
Celeb-inspired Valentine’s card
Remember when you were little and Valentine’s Day was a huge deal because of all the fun classroom activities that were to come? You’d go to the store with your parents and pick up a box of cards of your choice — most likely relating to your favourite TV show or a bunch of cute animals. Throw all of that aside and give this Snoop Lion card to the boy of your dreams. [bunnyyears]
Bieber > Everyone else
Not only does he write and sing songs that make you wanna melt, Justin Bieber always gives his Beliebers the attention they deserve, especially when it comes to replying to them on Twitter. Justin even serenaded us all with a sexy Valentine’s Day message during his Saturday Night Live gig this week. All I can say is look at this YOLO moment one fan wrote, and the best part is that he agreed! [last-bye]
Make your mouth water
One of my favourite things to eat (and I’m being totally serious) is Nutella. But what would make a Nutella sandwich even better? Strawberries of course! Not fully covered but it’s kinda like Hannah Montana where you get the best of both worlds. [ohsweetbasil]
Play your way out of a text
Chances are: You once had a creepy guy send you a message like this, which then made you wanna gag a little and then not even recall giving him your number. Whatever you do, get out of it and quick. [makemestfu]
Spice up your wardrobe
Who really cares about lingerie when you can go on a spring shopping spree and buy cute skinny jeans and casual shirts to flaunt during the month of February? I know it might be a little cold but once in a while you can bare through it and look super cute! [yourfashioninspiration]
Or just walk around wearing this
I mean if you’re THAT desperate for a Valentine, wear this sweater in a public place (ie. at school, the mall) and see what options come up to you. Hopefully it’s not the same creepy dude who was sending you that late night, unwanted text! [instagram-lovely]
What the day is actually called
For all you single people out there, Feb. 14 is just another day alone. But don’t put yourself down too harshly. Buy yourself a box of chocolate and continuously eat them until you don’t feel lonely anymore. [ladieslaughing]
Curl up on your couch and watch a movie because what else could be better? You could get all hopeless-romantic and turn on The Notebook or go the other direction and watch a hilarious comedy. [attributive]

A flying roller coaster with no track and exploding barrels… that’s basically what my first semester of college felt like. Although that might sound like it comes with bad connotations, it was one of the most open, creative and fun experiences I’ve ever had and it will forever hold a spot in my memory.
My classes, while challenging, helped me realize what I want in life and what I need to get there. My social life had depth and excitement and usually way too many activities for me to sleep. Your next semester will be vital; if not for delving into your major and social life, then for helping you realize where you really need to be.
Here are some ways to turn your college experience around this semester:
1. Do unto your roommate as you would have them do unto you. Remember, you sleep mere feet from them.
2. Do stupid things! I’m not endorsing crime or anything, but staying u playing video games the night of a test, or eating eleven of the cafeteria burgers that don’t really taste like meat? Those are the stupid things college kids do! So go out enjoy your stupidity while the repercussions are small.
3. Don’t be afraid to second guess yourself. If you don’t know exactly where you want to be or what you want to do, relax! More than half of the world is on the same page and no matter what you choose, it’s worth some time and thought.
4. If you’re not satisfied with your campus, think about transferring! If you find out cats make you pee yourself, then Hawaii is the wrong place to be!
5. Set up a system! Always have a system that alerts your roommate if you have a “guest” over and vice versa. That awkward moment where you someone’s genitals are burned in your mind every time you see them? That’s avoidable!
6. Find out how soon you have to choose a major and think about a gap year! I know way too many people who dropped out or transferred because they chose a major too fast and had to switch.
7. Considering doing an exchange to broaden your scope of the world. London anyone?
8. Be social! Everyone you see is looking for a friend just as much as you are; a friendly wave or ice breaker can create a bond that lasts for decades. Read more…
A stylish monkey wearing a shearling coat was spotted in the parking lot of a Toronto Ikea store yesterday and quickly became a social media sensation on Twitter and Tumblr. The monkey was found around 2 pm around Leslie Street and Highway 401, though no one knew where he came from.
Animal control arrived by 3 pm and the owners were finally located inside the store. Although the case was closed, these memes will last forever.

I feel like Tard the Grumpy Cat is never going to leave the internet or our hearts. I’m not complaining. The cat, who has become an internet sensation, is unintentionally the cutest animal to ever grace our unworthy eyes. However, Grumpy Cat has turned out to be a favourite amongst meme makers. Here’s a look at the best of the best memes that truly capture the essence of Grumpy Cat’s cold (yet beautiful) gaze.
The Internet was fraught with overreactions, memes and tweets about the announcement that Disney is buying Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. They’re also making a seventh movie in the Star Wars series called “Episode 7,” set for release in 2015, with Episodes 8 and 9 following. There’s just sooo much to think about. Not just unending questions about whether the seventh episode will be just as terrible as the last three released, but will there be a theme park? Is Leia now a Disney princess? Will Joss Whedon sprout angel wings and become the new director?
The Internet wants answers now people.
Best reactions from the Internet:

Let the memes begin. Hurricane Sandy is already creating a “viral” stir that is taking over news feeds everywhere. It is a very serious storm that could cause upwards of 10 billion dollars in damage but that’s already being overshadowed by funny GIFs and parody twitter accounts. As we all know the Internet can be a dangerous place to find information. There’s countless satirists and trolls preying on the naive souls who will believe anything they read online. Luckily, if you’re aware that 90 percent of trending topics are bullish*t, then you’ll find them much more entertaining. Thus, we’ve handpicked some of the most ridiculous and not-so-important content appearing about Hurricane Sandy.

Can you identify all these Halloween memes and pageant queens? If you’re looking for a clever, last minute costume idea check out these outfits inspired by what else? The Internet. Perfect for bloggers, techies, law students who don’t pay attention in class and lonely Redditors in their mom’s basement.
Other ideas? My Little Pony, LOL cat and the Overly Attached Girlfriend. Also, if you want to be a planker, you can literally situate yourself on top of the beer pong table and refuse to move. [Via Buzzfeed]

Since Romney’s comment last night about having “binders full of women” being brought to him when he was governor, the Internet has been going meme-crazy.
Rommey was attempting to answer an audience question about how he would ”rectify the inequalities in the workplace.” When he took over as Massachusetts governor, he said ”I had the chance to pull together a Cabinet, and all the applicants seemed to be men,” he said. “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks?’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”
A while ago JamaicanBaconify gave us the epic “Gif Sound the Video.” Now we finally have the dramatic sequel to the first video, featuring the very best gifs on the Internet accompanied by the most appropriate music for the situation (ie. Spider-Man dancing to “Maniac” or a cat peering out a window to the opening them of Game of Thrones). It’s a comedy, a tragedy, a drama and a horror all at once.
FYI, Fall is around the corner
Either you love fall or you hate it. It’s time to pack up your summer clothes and get ready for jeans, sweats and comfy oversized sweaters. If you’re kinda depressed about the whole change of weather, make yourself some autumn inspired cookies. I’m 99.9% sure you will feel better. [season-a-l.tumblr]
Mason is TOO cute, but it’s time to welcome another baby
On the season finale of KUWTK, you never know what you’re going to expect. I def shed a few tears as Kourtney gave birth (or technically pulled out) her daughter Penelope. Oh just another girl to add to the family. Watch out boys cause Lord Disick will be after you. [fuckyeahdash]
Pause — is that Harry Styles and Ed Sheeran?
Errrm, that’s some serious thrusting! One Direction’s Harry Styles and lyrical guru Ed Sheeran made a little (but impressive) cameo in XO MAN’s ‘Quag‘ music video. You know from Family Guy, “giggity giggity.” [let--us-die-young]

1. Today on the Internet, animal photos ruled again, starting with this photo of a new species of monkey found in Africa, called lesula. He eats bananas (unconfirmed) and will look deep into your soul with his beady eyes.
2. Although the animal photos were going strong, this young violinist delighted us with a sexual innuendo. This is how gangstas play the violin.
3. Finally! A fashionable fox you can fit in your roomy cardigan pocket to bring around town with you. It’s a statement piece.
4. Officially the nicest place on Earth. How will I ever go back to my house with the view of the hydro field? Gudvangen, Norway.
