@14, why is everything in that show so obviously fake?

As a current Cheez employee I can assure you that we make well over minimum wage with benefits and have always been located in Lower Queen Anne. Startups are hard man, we've been through a lot.

I got hired right after that big, damning Gawker article a few years back and trust me, a great deal of that article was unfounded and mostly just the rantings of an angry former employee. Every company, no matter how wonderful, has angry former employees from time to time.

Last time I looked at I Can Haz Cheezburger (which was at least a year ago) I thought it was pretty funny. That show looks painfully unfunny, humiliating, embarrassing, and above all, scripted and fake. For fuck's sake, what is wrong with those people?

The thing about LOL cats or Chhezburgr or Derpbase or whatever he put up on his webiste today is that even though he purports to be this big meme generator it's more of a meme endpoint. Successful, undoubtedly, but more insular and derivative than the owner would have one believe.

I also applied for a job there a few years back and figured I had a good shot at it, but it paid minimum wage and it would mean working in the SLU area (if I remember correctly), which seemed like hell to reach by public transit. I was pretty ambivalent about not getting a response.

Pretty boring. I watched one segment (and I like Bravo).

Life imitates art (ie, The Office).

Do they make a Cheezburger site with crazy dog pictures?

I applied for a job there and didn't get it. I'm really, really, really glad now that I saw this. Humiliating.

Do they still all get paid $9 an hour or whatever it was?
