The Internet Summed Up In One Massive, Meme-tacular Poster [Click to see who every character is]
Everyone that ever did anything on the Internet ever.
There’s well over 100 characters in this poster. Try and guess as many as you can. We have a legend that describes each and every one just in case there was that week you went on vacation and missed an entire meme.
A++ work by CollegeHumor.
Kevin Rose apparently has no idea how to dress for a photo.
This is deeply upsetting. The Internet, and pop culture in general, are losing a wonderful brand and distinct editorial voice. It’s going to be sorely missed.
After this week, BWE.tv will no longer be updated, and VH1′s digital pop culture coverage will be rolled into VH1 Celebrity, VH1 Music, and the VH1 Blog. We’ll be spending this week doing a series of BWE wrap-up lists and blasting “I Will Remember You” and “End Of The Road” simultaneously on a loop, and Friday, June 15th be our last day of new content.
If you’re wondering why this is happening, long story short, the show Best Week Ever went off the air more than three years ago. We attempted to re-pitch BWE.tv to VH1 as a type of Wives, but it didn’t take, so I’m afraid this is officially goodbye.

Shit’s getting real. Well done, Tumblr.
Nick Kroll provides 20 helpful tips for using the Internet.
Note: Kroll gets a pass for being a funny, professional comedian. Otherwise this type of list would be obnoxious, holier-than-thou “social media expert” bullshit.
The aim of launching the Web site is to raise awareness of veganism by offering pornographic material alongside graphic footage of animal mistreatment.
Because nothing is hotter than animal mistreatment. Look for it at peta.xxx. Seriously.
