LOLCAT is to the Internet what Disco was to the 70s.
Everyone loved it at the time – people couldn’t get enough of it. They were convinced that it was fun and enjoyable and a “feel-good” time. But then the coke-induced glow wore off and people all over America realized – hey, these pants look awful and this thing that has captured my energy and attention is a giant waste of time.
Of course, I am talking about LOLCAT.
Cut it out.
It was mildly amusing three years ago.
Now you are only making yourself ridiculous.
No more photoshopped kittens.
No more forwarded links or pics.
I hereby declare a moratorium on LOLSPEAK and banish you all to the deep shame corner of the internet.
By engaging in this sort of questionable behavior, you are setting yourself up for a giant fall. LOLCAT is not as wonderful as you think it is. I’m trying to do you all a favor here. 50 years from now people will look back in the old-timey internet archives and see this nonsense and ask us – WTF??
And what will you tell them? Will you look the future of America in the eyes (or maybe by that time they will have robotic eyes) and shift awkwardly in your flyingwheelchair and mutter something about how everyone was doing it at the time and we didn’t really know any better and then trail off and get your diaper changed by your cyborg nurse.
Or will you take a stand for dignity and justice?
Will you do something about this terrible meme so that later, when the LOLCAT Bible is lost to the scrapheap of internet history, and there are no more funny looking cats to add gibberish txt to, you can say – proudly, boldly- that you were never into that sort of thing and tried your hardest to erase it from the internet.
