    Default lolcats!?

    And no, that's obviously not the actual cover page. And this is definitely a topic where misinformation isn't very harmful, still it's great to see reporters doing in depth research on their articles to provide us with 100% accurate "news".

    I do believe Time has been reverse pwned by their own idiocy.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caturday

    Tamara Ikenberg of The News Journal states that "some trace the lolcats back to the site 4chan, which features bizarre cat pics [pictures] on Saturdays, or 'Caturdays'." The meme of "Caturdays" was introduced no later than February 5, 2006, when the Caturday community on Livejournal was first opened.[15] Ikenburg adds that the images have been "slinking around the Internet for years under various labels, but they didn't become a sensation until early this year [2007] with the advent of icanhascheezburger.com"[16] The first image on "I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER?" was posted on January 11, 2007.[17] The use of "lolcat" to describe the phenomenon was introduced no later than June 14, 2006, when lolcats.com was registered.[18] Lev Grossman of Time wrote that the oldest known example "probably dates to 2006",[19] but later corrected himself in a blog post[20] where he recapitulated the anecdotal evidence readers had sent him, placing the origin of "Caturday" and many of the images now known as "lolcats" in early 2005.
    Just had to clear that up.
