Vlad The Astronomer

Hi Burgers,

You know that feeling you get when you’re camping, the fire is dying, you’re gazing up at an impossibly star-filled night sky, and suddenly certain it’s impossible that we’re alone? This little story eloquently and aptly sums up that sensation.

You’re welcome fellow sappy space nerds.

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Cheezburger’s Easter Site Is Better Than Cadbury Eggs

Hi Burgers,

In case you haven’t noticed the chocolate bunnies crowding your grocery store since Valentine’s Day, it’s almost time for Easter. In honor of this most pastel of holidays, we’ll be setting up an Easter site from April 15 – 25.

Easter1

Best to start sharpening up on your Easter humor now so you’ll be ready to create and share some Easter lols. Here’s an exceedingly witty joke to get things rolling like Easter eggs on the White House lawn.

What do you call a line of rabbits walking backwards? A receding “hareline”.

Nailed it. Hooray for the holiday where a bunny hides colorful eggs in the yard and stashes baskets of goodies in your home like a floppy-eared, springtime Santa Claus.

Hoppy Easter,
Cheezburger

Hop on kitteh, hop on.

We Got A 3D Printer!

Hey Burgers,

Heck yeah we have a 3D printer in office! Naturally our first creation was this adorable kitteh named Cleo.

Complete with collar, tuna fish and a gift box for fitting and sitting. We truly do important work here at Cheezburger.

What should we make next?

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Heartbleed Virus

Hi Burgers,

The Heartbleed virus scare has certainly put people’s guard up, and for good reason, it’s a scary virus. We have been vigilant here at Cheez HQ about making sure our servers aren’t affected. We’re glad to report that we are 100% certain that Cheezburger has not been affected.

We would like to express the importance of going through any and all accounts you might have online and changing your passwords in order to be safe. This handy article from Mashable lists the sites that have been affected, but it’s probably best to simply change them all.

The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now

Stay safe out there everyone,

Peter Dinklage Is Not A Cat Person

Hi Burgers,

The Featured User post remains elusive. If possible, I will post tomorrow, so be sure to check back then.

In the mean time, for all of the GOT fans out there, Peter Dinklage, otherwise known as Tyrion Lannister is doing an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit right now, if anyone’s interested.

The Internet has already learned that he loves hummus and isn’t a cat person but has had a cat for ten years “because I had a rat in my apartment and I don’t like killing creatures. So I got a cat. I thought my roommate was going to take the cat but he moved out with his girlfriend and left the cat there. So I have this cat.” There you have it.

Get prepared to possibly watch one of your favorite characters die this Sunday on our GoT site.
Did Somebody Say Winter Was Coming?

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Congratulations Mr. Colbert

Hi Burgers,

Cheez HQ is in an uproar. Apparently, the news that Stephen Colbert is going to take over for Letterman is quite the polarizing topic. Some Burger employees feel Colbert’s talent will allow him to take on the new non-satirical format of Late Night. Others staunchly claim that the loss of everyone’s favorite pseudo-conservative “news” anchor will be too big a loss.

Gimme Some Claw, America

What do you think Burgers? Will you watch Late Night With Stephen Colbert? Will Colbert bring some satire to his new stage, or leave it all behind? Will Cheezburger’s employees settle things peacefully or attack each other with Cheez Force drones and rogue kittehs?

Check out Colbert’s statement about his new job here, then relive some classic Colbert on Cheezburger here. Who’s going to be the first to make a meme of Colbert with a Letterman gap in his front teeth?

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Can You Find Momo?

Hey Burgers,

For the love of all things snuggly and adorable, I hope everyone has heard of Momo! If not, today is your lucky day. The Pet Collective has you covered with this full bio of the Where’s Waldo of famous Internet pups. Be on the lookout for a certain special Tofuburger guest.

Cheers,

Today Is No Housework Day!

Hi Burgers,

How’s your kitchen looking? Dishes piling up? Are your feet looking like that of a Woodstock attendee just from walking back to your living room? What about the bathroom? Never mind, I don’t want to know. Don’t feel bad though because today is a procrastinator’s dream holiday, it’s officially No Housework Day. This holiday needs no more legitimacy than any other day to leave the dishes until tomorrow, but at least today you have Cheezburger behind you.

Here are 5 things you can do instead of any housework.

Watch the Game Of Thrones season premiere again (unless you’re using HBO Go). At least check out this version of the theme song as played by the New York Philharmonic..

while you’re filling out your GOT Fantasy Fantasy League roster! Compliments of The Nerdist.

Jiska Is The Kat’s Miauw

jiskat

Hi Burgers,

This week’s Featured User sends us all a warm “hallo” from the Netherlands. Jiskat believes that Amsterdam should be the first place we visit when we do an international Cheez Fren tour (should we get a Kickstarter going?), but not for the reason you’re all thinking. She wants us to visit the Poezenboot, a floating kitteh sanctuary! I think we have an official Dutch Lolcats ambassador, Whirled Dominayshun!

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
It’s a merge of my name and the Dutch word for cat. My name is Jiska, and the Dutch word for cat is kat.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I love word jokes. Been looking in on the Cheezburger Network for years before I decided to join 3 years ago. I’m not a very talented ‘captioniser’. Most jokes are lost in translation from Dutch to English, and I wanted to see what other people would come up with captioning my pictures. I truly do love when people caption my pics!!!

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I accept all friend requests. Can’t tell if you like a person if you don’t try to get to know them. But if in time Cheezfriends are not active in some form, like communication, favoriting LOLs, or making LOLs or Gifs, I will delete them.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
I have 3 cats of very different age’s (2, 5, and 22 years af age), and all 3 have totally different personalities! So… Lolcats obviously.
