Urlesque Swallowed by HuffPo- Cue Keyboard Cat
Urlesque Moving under Huffington Post Umbrella
Just as Cheezburger Network bought Know Your Meme, Huffington Post has taken over Urlesque. Well, a more accurate way of reporting this would be "AOL is shutting down Urlesque as a separate entity, and moving it under the Huffington Post umbrella, for which it spent a metric f&ck-ton".
So, while Keyboard Cat plays for Urlesque, you can still follow their style of meme tracking (and celebrating) on a special section of HuffPo. Urlesque will also maintain its Tumblr account (which costs AOL nothing, and may cost you your retinas).
Urlesque, which began life in 2008, is playing itself off (or playing itself forward?) with the tear-jerker compilation video below.
