Guide to LOLcats – Introduction
LOLCAT – OH HAI THERE
Are you ready to learn about LOLcats?
LOLcats are an internet phenomenon where people anthropomorphicize [sic] cats by putting a word or phrase on the image and pretend it’s what the cat is thinking or saying.
Good then I’ll begin.
LOLcat pictures are also known as cat macros. The origins of which began most likely on an image board known as ’4chan’. Despite generally being populated by narcissists and paedophiles 4chan members had a soft spot for cats, resulting in the creation of Caturday. This soon made it’s way onto The Something Awful forums where ‘I can has cheezburger’ catapulted these cats into the mainstream.
Despite being conceived on a board full of degenerates the awesome power of cats has washed away all sin associated with the origins of them. Now lolcats are something you can share with all the family. Indeed some may say cat’s are quite holy.
There is even a translation of the bible in cat speak – Lolcat bible.
The only real danger of lolcats are when the power to caption is abused.
But I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a change for the better.
