The Internet Does Know Everything!

I've heard the expression "nom nom nom", and, sure, we all have. It means "I've eating this." But one thing I wondered was... where did it originate? (Yes, the answer now is rather obvious, but, well...) So I turned to the great and powerful uber-tubes to find out, by simply googling "nom nom nom origin". And, hey, the very first result:

More about it being a meme here. Yes, "cute cats" are involved.

So, basically, "kids show" plus "all devouring internet that consumes any culture anywhere near it in a desperate attempt for attention, especially if it can involve animals and/or photoshopping (preferably both)" = "invasive culture phenomena".

Strange how often that formula applies...
