Description

I Can Has Cheezburger? (ICHC for short) is the name of a weblog featuring lolcats, which are pictures of cats or other animals with captions, paired for humor value. It was created in 2007 by Eric Nakagawa (Cheezburger), a blogger from Hawaii and his friend, Kari Unebasami (Tofuburger). The website is one of the most popular internet sites displaying lolcats. It received as many as 1,500,000 hits per day in May 2007, and now receives 500,000 hits per day. ICHC was instrumental in bringing animal-based image macros and lolspeak into mainstream usage and making internet memes profitable.

A group of investors acquired the website in September 2007 for US $2 million.

ICHC was created on January 11, 2007, when Nakagawa posted an image from Something Awful of a smiling British Shorthair, known as Happycat, with a caption of the cat asking, "I can has cheezburger?" in a style popularized by 4chan. It is from this image that the site derives its name. After posting similar images, Nakagawa then converted the site to a monetized blog.
