In an alternate universe, Abraham Lincoln would not have been assassinated by John Wilkes Booth while watching Our American Cousin on April 14, 1865 at Ford’s Theater. Then again, if we lived in an alternate universe then maybe Abraham Lincoln could have shot back at Booth with laserbeams coming out of his eye balls while a bear-ish Teddy Roosevelt stomped repeatedly on Booth, making sure that his fur got into the deep crevices of his body.
Who knew that a a pop tart cat would lead to over 50 million views on YouTube. This age that we live in, unbelievable. And of course, you can help to quench its growth by purchasing a Nyan Cat T-Shirt from Snorg Tees. The shirt is called Cat + Pastry = Rainbow and is available now Snorg Tees for $14.95.
And now some Nyan Cat history. It all stared with a little comic by prguitarman on LOL-COMICS. The comic was then reblogged on Tumblr over 3000 times. And then it led to a viral YouTube video (see below). And as they say, the rest is history.
Via Know Your Meme: On April 5th, 2011, YouTuber saraj00n posted a video titled Nyan Cat, using comic artist prguitarman’s Pop Tart Cat animation set to the well-known Japanese Vocaloid song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya by Japanese artist Daniwell-P looping in the background, Although the song had been originally composed for Hatsune Miku to sing, The version used in the video was of the cover sung by the Utauloid Momo Momone.
When I first spotted these kitten heavy T-Shirts made to look like other clothing garments, I surely thought that they were a joke. Needless to say, I delved deeper, jumped into the rabbit hole and found out that these LOL worthy kitten tees are indeed real and made by Deli Grocery, purveyors of Deli Grocery Specialty Products.
This unique brand based out of Brooklyn, New York, offers an alternative to the played out faux tuxedo tee (we’ve seen those a thousand times over and then some). Instead, they offer two options, a classic button up and a western themed version, both decorated with kitties that any fan of the I Can Has Cheezburger network of sites could be proud of. That wrap around bandana on the blue tee is a nice touch, don’t you think!
Though bordering on bizarre, both Deli Grocery tees have a unique character. It’s up to you to judge whether or not that character is worth $30 a piece.
In an unprecedented move, Threadless has released Three Keyboard Cat Moon after just three days of voting and an believable 3,791 votes. The shirt had a final score of 4.48 out of 5, the highest I’ve ever seen for a Threadless tee.
If you’re wondering what all the hype is about ten you’ve probably not seen one of the most talked about shirts on the Internet, the Three Wolf Moon shirt. After the first five star review stated, “it fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women” but “cannot see wolves with arms crossed”, a firestorm (meaning hundreds) of ironic reviews followed suit. The Three Wolf Moon shirt soared to the top of Amazons Top 10 list.Â A parody video consisting of some of the comments has also been posted to YouTube!
Oxen, the designer of the Threadless Three Keyboard Cat Moon will go down as creating one of the most sought after Threadless tees. The only question is, will he be a one hit wonder? In any case, you can pick up Three Keyboard Cat Moon for $20 from Threadless now!
