What Is It About Kittens and The Internet

In case you have never typed "kittens" into YouTube (and you know you have!), there are thousands of cute kitten videos on the site.  In fact, they could start calling it KittenTube.  Or some smart trendy person could create a website that is all about cute kitten videos.  Well, guess what?  There is a site out there just like that and it's draining the nation's productivity by the cute kitten minute.

It's called KittehRoulette, which is catchy but a bit of a misnomer.  It's not ChatRoulette for cats.  I know all you cat owners out there think your cat is a genius but it's not like there are a bunch of fat cats from Russia sitting in front of their owners' MacBook "nexting" some rangy looking kittys from Malaysia.  Basically, this site is a collection of all those YouTube cat videos, one right after another.  Though it uses the spelling popularized by the LOLCats phenomenon, it is somehow not part of that burgeoning cuteness empire.  The Kittehs stand alone....for now.

So if you're having a bad day or just need a break from the tedium of work, you now have an oasis of cuteness.  Meow.
