The internet is a funny thing. Al Gore may or may not have invented it, it allows people who never should have been famous to become so, and every so often an animal does something funny and the resulting video goes viral. This is the story of Fatso, a.k.a. the Keyboard Cat.

Basically, if a video of you is re-posted with Keyboard Cat on the end, you know you failed. There are entire websites devoted to these videos, such as playhimoffkeyboardcat.com. One of the thousands of modified versions, this one combines Keyboard Cat with one of the most unbelieveable video clips ever:

And finally, one of my favorite things about the Daily Show and Colbert Report is The Toss. Once a week or so they do a combined shtick between their shows. Being the culturally relevant comedians/journalists that they are, it was only natural that keyboard cat would show his face here:
