Cheezburger Network CEO Ben Huh was the subject of a Q&A with AdAge.com in which he discussed how one site featuring funny pictures of cats with amusing, misspelled captions turned into a thriving blog group, including I Can Has Cheezburger, I Has a Hotdog, FAIL Blog, Engrish Funny, There I Fixed It, Roflrazzi and newest addition That Will Buff Out.
Huh told AdAge.com:
We’re just going through the process of creating content that makes people happy for just a few minutes a day. We are not trying to be a TV network; we’re not trying to be a big media company. We are growing small things that are gathering loyal audiences. When you show up and you want to laugh or take a break from your daily work, then we have this little blog for you. You go, load the page, you scroll, and you’re done.
I love the fact people think I do this out of my garage! I am a business person. Let’s put it this way, no LOLcat I have ever created has made the home page.
