Oh, Miley. Miley! Why? Why did you take over the Internet this week? Every time I went online, there was another Miley meme that sprouted up. There was nary a cat video in sight – unless someone digitally inserted Miley twerking on a cat.
Commentary and jokes focused on Miley (and not Robin Thicke, it's interesting to note) were everywhere, so it would be egregious to not talk about her in a column about the biggest things online. So, here it is: The best (or worst, depending on how you feel about it) of Miley's Internet takeover.
