So I’ve been doing some business research where I get to use all these fancy (expensive) professional databases. One of the databases I have access to is Statista. Here is how Statista describes itself:

We keep our finger placed firmly on the pulse and closely monitor trends and progressions in all aspects of our business. Our database evolves and progresses in step with the newest trends as they occur, meaning that we are always up-to-date.
Here is the chart I just read, which was produced with all that remarkable analytical power:
The Internet’s Most Popular Cats from Felix Richter
If you are a regular user of Twitter or Facebook chances are you have seen your fair share of videos and photos featuring cute/cuddly/grumpy and/or funny cats. Here’s our inofficial ranking of the internet’s most popular cats!
I don’t know what “inofficial” means, but I think it might mean that, when it comes to business analytics, quants still need poets. Quantitatively, I’d also point out that Grumpy Cat appears to make the list twice. Perhaps, they need a footnote on how his social media is broken out. Anyway, Grumpy Cat is far out-pacing the still quite popular Nyan Cat, Sockington, Simon’s Cat, Lil BUB, Anti-Joke Cat, Bad Joke Cat, Keyboard Cat, and Anfield Cat. Put the two Grumpy Cat profile measures together and that kitty cat pretty much beats all the other kitties combined. That is my inofficial analysis anyway.
