"I HAS A HOTDOG: What Your Dog is Really Thinking" Available in Bookstores on April 20, 2010

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  Based on the hugely popular website of the same name, the books "I Can Has Cheezburger: A LOLCAT Colleckshun" and "I Can Has Cheezburger: How to Take Over Teh Wurld" were phenomenally successful bestsellers, both hitting the New York Times bestseller lists. Now the Internet happiness-hunters behind "I Can Has Cheezburger?" have gone to the dogs with "I HAS A HOTDOG: What Your Dog is Really Thinking" (Grand Central Publishing Trade Paperback Original; April 20, 2010; $12.00), which features the same funny pictures and LOL-worthy captions as "I Can Has Cheezburger?," except with dogs. Over 200 LOLdogs are let loose on the world, all barking the truth about sleep, toys, and of course cats.

I HAS A HOTDOG is based on the successful humor website, www.IHasAHotDog.com, which has enjoyed robust and sustained traffic since its inception in April 2008, averaging 7.9 million page views a month in the U.S. alone (11 million worldwide). Creator Ben Huh founded Cheezburger Network in 2007 and grew it into one of the largest humor networks in the world where more than 15 million people come every month to get their daily dose of laughter. With 340 million page views per month, the Cheezburger Network of more than 45 humor sites is quickly becoming the new Internet media empire.
