A Message From Cheezburger: We Can Has Ad Blocker Turned Off?

Hi loyal Cheez fans,

We know many of you don’t like ads with your Cheezburger. But those ads pay for our servers and the salaries of our staff. (And cat food!) We’ve put a ton of effort into making Cheezburger and KnowYourMeme faster to load. We do our best to eliminate bad ads, like those that start audio automatically.

But the stark truth is that advertising is our life blood.

Our mission at Cheezburger is to “Give the World 5 minutes of happiness a day”. If you’re reading this, we bet you agree that we’re pretty good at delivering on that mission. We don’t want to charge you to visit Cheezburger, because well, where would the happiness be in that? But if our ads are blocked, we can’t afford to put out the product.

Please disable your Ad Blocker for Cheezburger and KnowYourMeme or add us to your whitelist.

Many thanks,

The friendly folk of Cheezburger and KYM

Cheezburger Gummy Bear Taste Test Challenge 2K15!

IMG_6322

We love a good challenge here at Cheezburger HQ. Whether it’s how fast someone can eat five Cadbury Creme Eggs or who can eat a banana in under 20 seconds, if it can be turned into a challenge it will definitely happen!

Today, the Cheez crew decided to guess the flavor, brand and color from five different gummy samples.

IMG_6324

As you can see, everyone took the competition VERY seriously. Just look at the concentration on Chad’s face.

The three brands we were guessing from were Haribo, Black Forest and some generic, horrible household cleaner-tasting brand.

Here’s a depiction of what the garbage brand tasted like:

Bret was pretty excited. You could feel his dad joke powers growing with each gummy bear he consumed.

After turning in our answers, the champion received her honor by getting 11 correct.

And our winner was…

Amanda!

She didn’t want her picture taken. So here is a happy gummy bear sitting at her desk.

What is your favorite brand or flavor of gummy? Let us know below—cheers!

Who Do You Think Should Have Won World’s Ugliest Dog?

The annual Ugliest Dog Competition was held this weekend in Petaluma, California, as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair. It always seems that a majority of hairless dogs have the top seeds, however, this year’s winner was truly one of a kind.

Our office has enjoyed sharing our favorite “ugly” dogs from across the Internet. Ones that we believe deserved a shot at the title. So, I thought it would be interesting for you to share your top pick for this year’s ugliest dog in the comments below.

Here’s a list of this of some of this year’s candidates.

blue nails dem feet hairless trend hairy lookin runner up runnnnn

 

The winner was a 10-year old mutt named Quasi Modo. Taking home $1.500, this pit bull-dutch shepherd mix was born with a spinal defect and a giant heart. You go girl! winner

 

*Remember, it’s not on the outside, but inside that counts.
