Daily Diversion: LOLcats Get Some New York Times Coverage

cheezburger-daily-diversion-300
Who would have ever thought that anyone cared about the Cheezburger founder, Ben Huh? Apparently the New York Times does. In a recent NYT profile, Huh shared some interesting stats about the Cheezburger sites that we all tend to visit in our spare time (or...uh, office time). From a modest $10,000 investment from Ben, the site now has 16 million visitors. With 18,000 submissions per day, its too bad that only 1% of them ever actually make it to the web. Thanks a lot, Mr. Huh. (Urlesque)
