The Cat Show at White Columns has everything and nothing to do with cats. Everything, because most of the 134 artworks show cats or cat-related ephemera—like litter boxes, scratching posts, or yarn. Nothing, because the themes of many of these works aren’t about cats at all.

Today we prove that Best Link Ever isn’t all kittens and fucking hipsters. It’s all kinds of link bait completely unrelated to fine art, but uniquely qualified as time wasting fodder. I’m sick of Lady Gaga too, but who can resist this much vagina in one music video.
