There have been many corny internet fads, online banking for example, but none has been as vomit inducing as the lolcat. I don’t know the history, but I’m sure it’s stupid.
The fact is, people took a break from making craft books and started taking cat pictures (and other cutie animals) and putting hilarious statements below them like “What me worry?” only less funny.
Probably the best known lolcat resource is the site icanhascheezburger.com which looks like it was designed back in the day when Prodigy was the only way to get online by a designer with a spike in his head.
Anyway, everytime you laugh at one of these know that you’re stealing food from a starving baby, you rotten bastard.
