UPDATE:The photo is fake. The internet giveth, and the internet taketh away.

We're not sure how this happened, or why this happened, just that it happened (and that it's glorious): Perez Hilton posted a photo of Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister with none other than internet sensation Grumpy Cat. And, yes, Dinklage is making an appropriately grumpy face.

Considering Dinklage is wearing a tie, maybe this was at one of the approximately one thousand premieres that were held for Dinklage's superhero movie "X-Men: Days of Future Past," although that still doesn't answer the question of why Grumpy Cat was there. Is Grumpy Cat doing red carpet interviews now? What kind of access does this cat have?

Sometimes it's best not to ask questions about where certain amazing things come from, just to cherish those amazing things forever and ever. Also, to share a funny autobiographical story: I used to see Dinklage walking his dog in the East Village. And it always shocked me because, as a man of diminutive stature, you'd think he'd have a small dog, one that would emphasize Dinklage's size and, well, not threaten to trample him. But no. Dinklage was always walking a Great Dane that was, roughly, the size of a baby rhinoceros.

There you go, everyone: Peter Dinklage, a lover of animals. That is, of course, if Dinklage chose not to unload a quiver full of arrows into Grumpy Cat shortly after this photo was taken.
