"Cats and captions — like reason and argument, poetry and prose, wine and cheese — it's a combination that today we take for granted." Thus begins Ben Burrns's (Ken Burns's feline-lovin' bro?) seminal history of the LOL cats phenomenon. From Happy Cat who wants a cheeseburger, to Ceiling Cat who's watching you masturbate, The History of LOL Cats will teach you all you wanted to know about the history of the cat/caption craze. I need to start donating more to PBS, with this kind of outstanding programming.
