Eric Nakagawa, co-founder of the early and quite infamous image macro website I Can Has Cheezburger?, selected some of the original Lolcat meme art from his personal “I Can Has Cheezburger?” collection and put them up for auction as NFT art on OpenSea. Included in this collection are such classics as “Invisible Bike”, “Halp”, “Ceiling Cat”, and of course “I Can Has Cheezburger?”.
I've put the original I Can Has Cheezburger? cat meme up for auction. Own a piece of internet history. https://t.co/IWpkHyvQq8

A portion of the proceeds from the meme sale will go towards foundations and organizations that support animals, teach technology to kids, and allow art on the internet to be appreciated (ASPCA, Internet Archive, EFF, WWF, and others). It will also go towards supporting artists and buying more NFTs! These images are the original files from my ancient personal archive.
