Ah. Yes. Well.

A pointed reminder, that, no matter how busy you are, someone, somewhere in the world has enough spare time to rewrite apocalytic poetry in LOLCAT!

Wow. That's almost as good at Cope's rewrite.

Yes, but you're not going to get any sympathy with *that* icon...

I suspect lol-catting stuff 'clever-like' is no longer funny BUT I LARFFED SO WHO CARES.

Did I miss the joke by reading this in a text browser? Is this some important statement about the evolution of language, or just another AllYourBase?

Er, it's T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land 'translated' into Lolcat-speak. [See Anil Dash, Cats can has grammar for more about the language of lolcats.]

I'm afraid that is the joke, and I suspect (being textual) it would work just as well in lynx as it does in Firefox. Sorry for wasting your time with another dumb internet meme, eh.

Oh, I seeeee. I'd have to have found out sooner or later.

Still not amused, of course. All my cats prefer their captions in perfectly-formed sentences.

The Wikipedia article links to a scan of a piece in Time (deep breath) which includes the word 'lolbrarians'. That was from July -- barely two months since you coined it. FTW!

This warrants at least an extended footnote in my ongoing opus, Mice in the Attic: an analysis of poetry between the wars. I hope to finish it before I turn entirely into a tweed suit, and then new data like that comes in, and I have to start over.

Not with a bang but with a meow. Am sore from LOLing now.

Clearly this is a LOLform that should be explored.

The Apocatalypse

Not Brainsafe.

You have, of course, read the LOLcat Bible?
