Hi there,

Some of you may be familiar with a ritual of the blogosphere known as "Caturday," or, to those who just can't wait, "Friday Night Cat Blogging." Practitioners post funny pictures of cats with funny, frequently meta or political captions. Then, along came the iconic "I can has cheezburger?", and the meme really took off. Now known as LOLcats, the pics are not unlike the old motivational poster "Hang in there!" with a kittten hanging from a branch, but they're a lot more warped. Thanks to the internets, anyone can now make a LOLcat with this handy LOLcat builder.

Or, you could make a LOLceph.

Here's my swat at the ball, "I can has ur chilean sea bass?"

Clem

I just noticed this thread, and thought that I should mention the opening of my little web experiement LOLCEPHZ!!!! I encourage you guys to submit your own, because actual pet pictures are so much cuter than ones I pirate off the interwebz! (I hope to have an uploading feature on soon!)

I'm bumping this thread. I'm writing an article called The History of Cephalopods on the Internet and came across this thread -- it had (and still has) some promise. Please add to it freely! :smile:
