What is a "lolcat"?

Asked by ru2bz46 (6743points) March 24th, 2009

I’ve heard people complain about people asking questions about lolcats, but I don’t even know what they are. Examples, please? Oh, and I will never mention them again; I’m just curious.

Hi, welcome to the internet.
I will be your guide.

Lolcats are pictures of cats together with a grammatically incorrect caption.
Recognized as funny by trolls.
Trolls are 13 y/os or people acting like 13 y/os online. You do not want to be a troll.

See this for examples.

XKCD explains

They are an overused meme that should die very soon.

There’s a nice article here about the phenomenon and how someone’s getting very wealthy on it.

Oh, those! Holy crap, get me out of here! Sorry everyone! I just saw the sibling questions to this one, such as, “Can I haz cheezeburger?” Though it made me very hungry, it also made me aware of my horrible, horrible mistake. Please don’t associate me with this question. Can I have this moderated (unless I’m getting lurve for it, hee hee)?

@VzzBzz Similar to “sail cats” (roadkill cats that are flat and sun-dried that fly like Frisbees™)?

@ru2bz46 I’m amazed that someone else remember’s Sail Cat.

I watched some really fucked up cartoons as a kid…

ru2bz46's avatar

@boots Was Sail Cat a cartoon character? When I was a kid, we actually scraped up the dry flat pussy and chucked it.

kenmc's avatar

@ru2bz46 It was on the cartoon, Cow and Chicken.

ru2bz46's avatar

@boots I only saw Cow and Chicken a few times. I don’t remember any Sail Cat. I’m sure that was way funny, though.

12 gauge + you + lol cat = pull!
12 gauge + me + lol cat + pull! = splat
