100-Year-Old Vintage Cat Memes

Believe it or not but it turns out the very first cat memes were created over 100 years ago, thanks to a photographer named Harry Whittier Frees. Harry Whittier Frees dressed up cats and posed them with props, just the way one would photograph a human. He basically did what people do today before it was cool. 

Frees was born in 1879, Reading, Pennsylvania. In an interview with LIFE magazine, it was told he took his first "lolcat" photo completely by accident! The year was 1906 when his family gathered for dinner and brought a paper hat. They passed around the hat from head to head until it was placed on the head of Frees' cat. At that moment he took a photo of a cat with a hat. The source mentions how admired the shot was so he began to take more photos of cats in outfits and props. 

These photographs were taken in the early 1900s with a camera speed of 1/5th a second. As as we all know, cats (especially kittens) move constantly. Especially when you're trying to take a picture of them! So you can imagine how difficult it must have been and reportedly, two-thirds of the negatives had to discarded due to their blurriness. 

Honestly, it just makes the following images that much more impressive! Feast your eyes on the world's earliest cat memes:

Inventions That Work Too Well to be Improved Upon

Sometimes someone comes up with a design so simple, elegant and effective that it becomes the de facto item for that use in perpetuity. It must feel good to have created something that does something the best. In the other direction, here are inventions that are now used for something other than their intended purpose.

Nineteen Dank Time Machine Memes Because They're Everywhere

Remember those Time Machine memes we covered last week? Well, they haven't shown any sign of disappearing from our timeline. The very gender-oriented format plays with many themes, but most often imagines men and women doing very different things with time-traveling technology. While the format often imagines doing something just and noble with the time machines, sometimes the boy (or girl) in question chooses to do something entirely pointless. Either way, we're loving the memes. We've put together some of favorite new iterations, but you can read more about the format (and enjoy more examples) over at Know Your Meme

Dudes Avoid Chaotic Evil With Skimpy Outfits And Love

Tumblr did a good thing with this fun and wild little story about a Professor who dodged ultimate danger, with some skimpy clothing and kindness. Seriously, whether this story is real or not, it is amazing. Just picturing a bunch of laughing, smiling dudes out on an adventure, dancing and entertaining for their kicks at night, taking none of it seriously, is enough to warm the heart. Glad to hear that they managed to avoid a perilous predicament. 

Take in some more fun from Tumblr with this post about how dwarves have intelligent super beards.
