Mashable smartly hosted Grumpy Cat, the meme sensation at SXSW this year. The frowning feline commanded lines that sometimes ran four blocks long. The intellectually snootie can lament the demise of intelligent discourse at SXSW all they want but Grumpy Cat’s popularity cannot be denied. Here’s a disappointed fan who didn’t get to see her royal highness, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, at the festival. See this story in Time.com on our favorite kitty.

For those of you who doubt her popularity, here’re photos of more disappointed fans and the paparazzi-like mob who¬†clamored¬†to get a glimpse/shot of Grumpy as she was being whisked from the building to her waiting SUV.
