Quick way to set your SSH public as an authorized key on a remote server

I was just copying the public key and then accesing the server to make the authorized_keys file and so on, but this command does that automatically.

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh USER@HOST "mkdir -p ~/.ssh && cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys"
