Answer:
The creature is the “alot”. First seen at http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html – this animal is the result of someone finally taking a stand against a horrible misspelling.

    Alot.

    People end up joining the words when they say “a lot” and pronounce it as “alot”.

    Hyperbole and a Half, talking about the mythical creature “Alot”.
    A youtube comment grammar nazi.

    The Alot is Better Than You at Everything

    The ALOT.
    The word removed in the images is ‘alot’ meaning ‘a lot’.

    It’s an “alot”, thanks to hyperbole-and-a-half (one of my sister’s favorite blogs!)


  6. Kaustubh

    The animal is an Alot. The Alot is an imaginary creature invented to deal with the atrocious grammar of internet folks.

    I predict “ALOT” of trouble with this meme catching on, given that HyperboleAndAHalf kicked-it off with purloined images.

    Real memes don’t get created. Like Athena, they have to spring, fully grown, directly from the forehead.

    ALOT – a new meme creature borne of linguistic laziness, the Alot (pictured) is a cross between a bear, a yak and a pug” that manifests itself whenever someone online is too lazy to type “a lot” and types “alot” instead. Created by annoyed grammatical stickler Allie of Hyperbole and a Half

    A fictional animal (a cross between a bear, yak and a pug) called alot. Made up by a stickler for grammatical correctness to help her put up with the ubiquitous “alot” in the internet.
