Panning for Internet Gold: The cat ballet edition

*May contain cats.
Dance, pony, dance
- Everything’s being done Gangnam Style these days, but those Korean lyrics aren’t always easy to remember.
- Somewhere, there is a company making Star Wars speeder bikes a reality. Bless their hearts.
- Hands up if your favourite thing about Star Wars is Boba Fett’s helmet. So lovely. Well, now there are these beautiful design variations on the Fett-hat. All for charity, too.
- Hitting a sweet spot on the popular culture Venn diagram, it’s a Downton Abbey/Clueless gif mash-up.
- Some tattoos are objectively amazing.
Lacking that snappy edge? You need the Bill Murray supercut. Watch. Repeat. Watch. Repeat. Watch. Repeat (and so on).

- This Chinchilla’s gradual progress is mesmerizing.
- Guinea pigs are adorable, right? Not so much these Etsy specimens.

- The world of pet magazines is, uh, quite unlike the world that the rest of us know.
Insert annoyed grunt
- They said it was merely myth, but no. Pictures of Morrissey smiling.

- The best call to a football phone-in, ever. “I wanted a bow tie.”
