(Newser) – Never underestimate the power of a funny cat: Cheezburger, the publisher of esteemed sites like LOLcats and FAIL Blog, has just raised $30 million in its first round of institutional funding. The money will allow Cheezburger to "hire, hire, hire," says founder Ben Huh, who plans to bulk up the company's current roster of 50 employees. Android and iPhone apps are in the works, reports Mashable, which notes that Foundry Group, which led the funding, has also invested in Facebook darling Zynga.

someone get Aitchondo a beer quick like!! His blood is getting too thick and he's slurring his typing. Got a buddy just like Aitchondo! Couldn't pass a sobriety test sober to save his life. After two six packs, he can stand on his head and stack greased BB's. You got to admire that in a man!
