    I know everyone knows what a lolcat is, but I found Wikipedia's description amusing. The captions of the two pics at the top of the article are also funny, in a dry way ("A lolcat asking for a cheeseburger" and "A lolcat depicting a confused cat").


    A lolcat is an image combining a photograph, most frequently of a cat, with a humorous and idiosyncratic caption in (often) broken English?a dialect which is known as ?lolspeak,? ?kitteh,? or ?kitty pidgin? and which parodies the poor grammar typically attributed to Internet slang. The name "lolcat" is a compound word of the phrase "LOL" and "cat". A synonym for "lolcat" is cat macro, since the images are a type of image macro. Lolcats are designed for photo sharing imageboards and other internet forums. The term lolcat gained national media attention in the United States when it was covered by Time, which wrote that non-commercialized phenomena of the sort are increasingly rare, stating that lolcats have "a distinctly old-school, early 1990s, Usenet feel to [them]."

    from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet

    Internet jargon and history

    Many terms now in common use on the Internet?so-called "jargon"?originated or were popularized on Usenet.



    I'm understanding this to mean they are talking about "IMHO", "ROTFL", etc., but I will defer to the professional geeks on this board.
