These are the photos that Sue had linked to:

I also said that we'd mail a goodie to my personal favorite entry. After pondering the options, I chose Denise Bryant's submission.

I love all the Grumpy Cat pics that are so popular right now! Here is one of my favorites!

(Sue D and Denise, please email me with your address by September 30th to claim your secret prizes.)

If you're wondering about the Grumpy Cat that Denise referred to, this is the example she sent:

"Grumpy Cat" is a nickname given to an angry-looking snowshoe cat that rose to fame online after its pictures were posted to Reddit in September 2012. The cat's real name is Tardar Sauce.

Memes featuring this frowning feline spread quickly, with crabby quotes plastered all over Tardar Sauce's photos:

There are not one, but two, Grumpy Cat books that have been published:

Grumpy Cat also has apps, including a plug-in for the Weather Kitty app:

(I just downloaded the GrumpyBomb app, where Grumpy Cat photobombs your pics, but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet.)

You can even buy Grumpy Cat merchandise, such as t-shirts, mugs, and even a droll-looking plush animal:

Similarly, Grumpy Grandma was an instant online hit:

This one made me giggle:

Apparently, Grumpy Grandma really made the rounds:

Thanks to everyone who made time to participate last week. I hope your day is a decidedly NON-grumpy one!
