Thomas Edison, Inventor of.. LOLcats!

We all know Edison invented the light bulb (among other things) but who knew he also made one of the earliest, “hilarious” (for the time) cat videos?!  

We don’t know if this 1894 cat boxing video is the first of the LOL variety, but we’re giving Edison credit (we have that authority) not only because he already invented a bunch of other stuff but also because we think it’s pretty cool that this wise guy had a sense of humor.
