No cheezeburger

For as long as I can remember, the most popular site on Word Press has been I Can Has Cheezeburger, to which people send in pictures of their cats with goofy captions. What amazes me is that people follow the directions to put the captions in a language called “lolcat,” the instructions for which are not easily found.

It goes against everything marketing people teach. It goes against almost everything I see every day, including the drivers who flipped off the fire engine while refusing to push into other lanes during rush hour because getting home to that martini is far more important than the fire at your house.

My tribute to Cheezburger:

  1. As a regular viewer of cheezeburger, what can I say? The kitties are cute, and some of the captions are funny! However, I also like your chicken, Quinn.

  3. Pete–who knew that “lol” was a geezer expression from 1912? I love the cartoons at the link–they look as if they were drawn with a fountain pen, as the rapidograph was invented by someone at Koh-i-Noor in 1982. Lolcats also had a character named “kitteh,” a term used by a lot of people at cheezburger, too.
