Kitteh Roulette, Lol Cat Bible Translation Project and I Can Has Cheeseburger are proof in the pudding, but now the power of the digital felines has crept in to Twitter.

And then the equivalent of David Caruso's taking off the his sunglasses and quipping:

Anyway, you get the idea and the gist of the movie. I'm still certain I don't need to waste a Netflix envelope getting this garbage. It's so much more fun seeing it unfold in the disjointed chronology and user-submitted edits off YouTube, complete with the MST3K comments.
