people have too much time on their hands.



the term "LOLcats" has a wikipedia entry.

update: dear god... it appears that LOLcats has developed into a full-fledged internet meme.

this is like that period of time "in real life" (a few months ago) when the film borat came out and everyone developed "boratitis." everyone thought they were so clever when they would butcher the english language borat-style by saying "eeets niiiiiice!" and "sexy time!" and "high five!" over and over again. and they wouldn't stop!

now people think they are ever so clever by butchering the english language with overused faux-internet slang (e.g. "i are teh sexy!" - what the fuck is that? are you typing on GHB? would you mind taking some more, so you pass out and STOP typing?) and then superimposing these words on pictures of cats.

go away, LOLcats. GO AWAY!

I'm sorry...this does not compute. So, if I create a new line of LOLesbians...that might be cool.

A) I concur with the LOL-lesbians. The concept is fascinating.

B) My sister says that LOLcats are ruining her ability to speak English.

I agree that this is just one more example of people having wayyy too much time on their hands. But I must confess, I find some of these kind of funny.
