There’s civil unrest in Egypt. The government might be spying on us. Millions are out of work. But OMG THERE’S A KITTY ON A NEWS PROGRAM GIVING AN INTERVIEW. Gahhhhh. Grumpy Cat hit up the Australian “Today Show” for a hard-nosed interview that sent TV host Karl Stefanovic into a giggling, snorting, knee-slapping fit.
Glad to know it isn’t just American journalism that’s down the toilet. [Uproxx]
Wait, what? Look, Internet cats and sugary coffee beverage are my two favorite things in life. But Grumpy Cat branded Grumppuccino coffee? Debuting today (on my Instagram Grumpy Cat feed, off all places) the Grumppuccino drinks are a direct knockoff of Starbucks bottled coffee in its mocha, coffee and vanilla flavors. But instead of that mermaid with her green boobies, these bottles have Grumpy Cat on ‘em. I was hoping Grumppuccinos were some kind of meta-joke, but they appear to be as real can be. And at only $29.95 for a case of 12, a better deal than Starbucks. The Internet is weird. [Drink Grumpy Cat]
From Annie on “Community” to Trudy Campbell on “Mad Men,” Alison Brie is a woman of many talents. Including, it turns out, impersonating Internet memes. Her ‘Unflattering Beyoncé’ is pretty funny too. [MadeMan via The Gloss]
Today is a momentous, miserable occasion. This is the first birthday of everybody’s favorite misanthropic kitten, Grumpy Cat — and everybody’s celebrating. There are even Grumpster Cat birthday postage stamps! It’s hard to believe that just one year ago, the world was Grumpy-free. How did we express our dry wit and humor without her? The world has truly become a better, more grumpy place thanks to Tarder Sauce. So even though we know she probably hates birthdays, and parties, and anything fun at all, we’re happily wishing Grumpy Cat a most unhappy birthday.
Tardar Sauce is a wee bit misanthropic, but even Grumpy Cat herself won’t deny her support of gay marriage. We found this amazing portrait of the Grumpster made (we think!) by Lana Rakhman, and couldn’t resist sharing Grumpy’s pro-gay marriage protest. [Facebook]
