A form of Usenet Performance Art begun in January, 1996, when a bunch of weenies from harvard, who lived in alt.fan.karl-malden.nose tried to invade alt.tv.beavis-n-butthead. One of the haavaad weenies, Matt Bruce, made a post that went "Meow meow Henrietta Pussycat meow meow meow The Presidents of the United States of America meow Kitty," earning him immediate flamage. And thus, meows began flowing to alt.hell and back, until it made a lot of people very angry, and ISPs began instituting draconian Acceptable Use Policies.

Meow still lives to this day, with alt.fan.karl-malden.nose as its hub of activity. Anyone is invited to meow, but must be prepared to be laughed at if they use a crappy newsreader.
