Cute kitten ruled big cIty newspaper for 16 magic minutes

Everybody could use some good news on days and centuries like this one, so it was welcome indeed when a very cute cat greeted readers of the Chicago Tribune website for a few glorious minutes today. Why not make every day Caturday? Because American Business hates fun.

The Chicago Tribune Has Made the Best Internet Mistake of the Day

The Chicago Tribune Has Made the Best Internet Mistake of the Day

It looks as though they've fixed it, but for a glorious 16 minutes this was the Chicago Tribune homepage. It is self-evidently wonderful, but let's still talk about just how wonderful it is.

Cat image. Test, test, test, test, test, test, test. Headline test. The cat is a kitten. The kitten is grey. Test, test, test. Updated. It's like the internet swallowed a Gertrude Stein poem and pooped this out 16 minutes later.

Let's make all of the homepages this, just for a day. It'd make things better.

Update: Our interview with Chicago Tribune Social Media and SEO Manager Amy Guth about what went down.
