Berners-Lee ‘a fake created by publicity-seeking cats’

On the 25th anniversary of the invention of the World Wide Web, its creator ‘Tim Berners-Lee’ has been exposed as a false identity that was actually created by a pack of stray cats scavenging in the bins around the CERN facility in Switzerland.

Using human skin flakes collected from roller towels in the toilets, the cats constructed a functioning suit to hide in and moved around CERN undetected. They went on to design the template and structure for the internet as we know it. While their motives remain unclear, it is thought by some that they just wanted an outlet for their large collection of selfies.
