@satiregram is an account that skewers Instagram cliches with hilarious results. Food photos, duck-face selfies and Throwback Thursdays are all roasted here.

12Cashcats on shows how the rich cats roll
If you love tough but adorable felines, meet the cashcats of Instagram—VIP cats surrounded by cash, guns and bling as far as the eye can see.
The brainchild of Sketchy Santa impresario Will Zweigart, @cashcats was envisioned as a "VIP room" for "high net worth felines," but quickly became a platform for people's ideas about wealth and power as user-submitted photos of cats came to include alcohol, firearms, and world currencies.
Zweigart explains, “I didn't ask for any of that, but that's what people interpreted when they thought of rich cats. That's what they think of when they think of power, money and class.”
