Posted on April 22, 2015, at 5:41 a.m. ET

Oh shit... it's time for another episode of INTERNET EXPLORER! This week we discuss something that is old as the dawn of the internet, and something that is only very new: furries and Kylie Jenner conspiracy theories.

Furries are people who dress up like animals. The animal character of their choice is their "fursona".

Furries have been around long before the internet, but have always occupied a special place on it. Ryan interviewed some furries recently for BuzzFeed, and Katie once attended a furry convention.

Furries have been around long before the internet, but have always occupied a special place on it. Ryan interviewed some furries recently for BuzzFeed, and Katie once attended a furry convention.

The age-old question with furries has always been "so..... is it a sex thing?" We dive deep into the answer.

Then we jump into the Tumblr/Twitter conspiracy theory that there are actually two Kylie Jenners.

Kylie being a "catfish" because of how different she looks on Instagram is a reoccurring theme.

Could dozens of strangers on the internet be on to something? We investigate.

Kylie Jenner is a catfish I swear

Oh, and Julia learns about "Slash," the genre of fanfiction where you imagine a non-cannonical sexual relationship, like Snape and Harry Potter.

Or whatever this is...
