World’s funniest joke

A virtual cat!

Oh my god, Nekocat is the cutest virtual pet I’ve ever seen in my life!

It’s for the Palm OS, and is programmed by this guy in France. Bonus: He’s also programmed a version of John Conway’s famous cellular-automata Game of Life for the Palm, which blew my mind back in the 1980 when Byte magazine printed a version of it to run in BASIC. And check out the section of his site where he’s done Windows-based emulations of insane 1980s Tandy “pocket computers”.

This guy rules.
