“I’m excited to see the Know Your Meme community joining the Cheezburger community,” said Ben Huh, CEO and founder of Cheezburger. “Since Cheezburger is the playground of choice for millions of Internet culture fans, this acquisition is a natural compliment for our community. Now, in addition to delivering 5 minutes of happiness through I Can Has Cheezburger?, FAIL Blog, Memebase, and The Daily What, we can help the public understand the origins of memes and how content goes viral on the Web.”

“Thanks to the amazing community, Know Your Meme has become the Internet’s go-to resource for understanding meme culture,” said Andrew Baron, founder of Rocketboom. "The academic rigor and unique tool set provides a foundation which people really respond to. "
