I guess we all know the viral Grumpy Cat, the spirit animal of many of us (especially on Monday mornings). In 2015, a beverage company used Grumpy Cat’s name and image without a license, and the kitty’s owner Tabatha Bundesen decided to file a lawsuit.

I have a question.
Actually, I have a lot of questions. These are questions that have been simmering on a low heat in the back of my brain.

DIYP was one of the first to report about Nikon Singapore awarding a trolley bag to a Photoshopped photo (you can read the full story here). While both the internet and Nikon SG have been having a great deal of fun with the photo, Yu Wei have been taking quite a deal of abuse. From something that was supposed to be a fun photo contest, this has become an open season on Yu Wei.

Here are some of the funniest Pluto MEMEs that we found around the web. (follow the #pluto tag to find more, share the good ones)
