Happy National Ice Cream Month!

It’s hard to not think about all things ice cream during these hot summer months which is probably why July is National Ice Cream Month. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day.

Some interesting facts about ice cream:

– Americans eat on average 20 quarts of ice cream a year.
– Vanilla is the most popular flavor.
– The ice cream cone was invented at the 1904 World Fair in St. Louis.

Here are some of our favorite ice cream images and gifs from around Cheezburger to celebrate this amazing food!

Lolcat Brings Warmth to Snowstorm, and Checks Your ID


Here’s a great story about a Lolcat bringing 5 minutes of happiness to a woman in the middle of a small town snow storm:

“I was driving from Spokane, WA in the middle of a burgeoning snow storm. My gas light came on, and being in the middle of nowhere, I had to find a gas station fast. I met up with my parents at a Shell station in Steptoe, population just a little over 2,000. We ran inside to get something to drink (the weather was a nightmare at this point, wind, snow, rain etc). After we had paid for everything, I overheard my mom talking about Cheezburger and Lolcats with the manager of the store. I ran out to the car to grab my phone and snapped the picture. The woman said she loved the site, tells everyone to visit ICHC and that everyone who comes into the store laughs about the photo!”

Have your own IRL examples of Lolcats bringing happiness? Let us know in the comments below!

Cheezburger Had Something to Celebrate, So We Had Cakes!

Last month, Cheezburger HQ was packed to the bun with Cheezworkers from around the globe. Every three months, we invite our whole remote team (ranging from LA to New York to Poland) all the way out to Seattle for a week of work, collaboration and a round or two of karaoke. This CheezCon, we also had a few things to celebrate. Last September marked the Cheezburger Network’s fourth birthday. In human years, four only makes you a toddler, but we were also celebrating a huge, grown-up company accomplishment with the launch of Cheezburger Sites. And clearly, there are few better ways to celebrate than with cake. Thanks for all your support and here’s to many cakes in the future!

4th Birthday!

Cheezburger Sites FTW!
