Grumpy Cat is getting his own statue at Madame Tussauds, making him the first-ever cat to be immortalized in wax at the famous museum.

Grumpy Cat is the cat with the down-turned mouth and bushy eyebrows who has become an Internet sensation over the last few years. Grumpy Cat is featured in memes where he is unimpressed by various activities. He has his own Twitter account, is engaged in PR campaigns for numerous brands and businesses and has apparently amassed a large fortune (for his owner). Now, Grumpy Cat is getting the ultimate marker of celebrity status -- a Madame Tussauds statue.

Grumpy Cat is, predictably, unexcited by the prospect of this latest tribute. For the rest of the world, it's a testament to the immense power of Internet pop culture.
