California Man Jailed For Cooking and Eating the Internet's Favourite Animal

By Jon Partridge on at

I'm pretty sure the internet came to a standstill when it learned that California resident Jason Louis Wilmert was being held in Kern County Jail on charges for animal cruelty and eating pet cats for food.

One of the most prominent and dominant internet crazes, partly due to Lolcats and ICanHasCheezburger.com, as well as their cuteness and tendency for weird things; cats seem to be the food of choice for Wilmert. But it is unclear how many cats are involved in this cruel man's baking and frying activities.

Wilmert is due for a court hearing later today, but it's not going to bring back any of the cats he has cooked -- nor any of the potential lolcat images that could have been made. [The LA Times and The Telegraph]
