Your leader in Lolcats hate.

Or so says the Google. I've had a ton of hits today from people searching "I hate lolcats," with the vast majority coming from Europe or Canada.

I decided to follow the link in my site tracker, and to my delight and amazement, I found that when one enters "I hate lolcats" into Google, I'm the first result.

This is yet another proud day in my blogging life.

I still hate Lolcats, though, I don't see them as much these days. I don't know if they're over or it's just that I don't run into them as often because my fucking-around-on-the-interwebs time has been so severely compromised by having to work at my job. I would like to hope its the former, but it's probably the latter.

The Boy I Currently like still thinks I'm dead inside because I hate them. Though, I must admit that the last one he sent me actually made me smile. He only dodges my Lolcats-related ire because his use of them is judicious and usually well-timed. Also, because he has a cute butt. And while I thought I'd fallen prey to using Lolcat-speak every now and again, it cheered me to find out that my favorite (and the only one I ever use), "DO NOT WANT," originated not with Lolcats, but a horrible Star Wars translation. This only makes me love it more.

Also, I don't mind the Lolcat-speak as much when say, Jezebel is doing Lolvogue. Or when it's in porn form. I suppose this makes me a horrible hypocrite, but what can you do?

I really worry that I am a moron b/c they make me giggle, sometimes uncontrolably. I just had to admit it to someone. I'd love to see it in porn form though.

I'll also have to admit that I have a soft spot for the lolcats, mostly because I'm a crazy cat lady.

But hey, what are you gonna do?

Jess said...

The Lolporn is hilarious and disturbing, which = totally awesome.

My hatred of Lolcats stems from my hatred of poor grammar and spelling. And I really don't like cats. But they love me. Or so it would seem. I'm pretty sure they can tell I'm allergic and hang around me to make me miserable. Jerks.

I want to be the first result for something dammit.

I will admit I googled "I hate Lolcats" yesterday, and found your witty blog. I hate them because of the whole "aren't I clever" thing, the worse-than-childlike spelling, combined with the annoying anthropomorphism of cats that has been around since... who knows. But I hate them and I want some bacon now.

Jess said...

I am so very glad you could come here and share in the hate, Mr. Smythe. Sorry to have made you want bacon. I hope you're able to get a fix soon.

Now I want bacon.

I wish I could tell you how to make your dream come true, Beth, but I got nuthin'.

Strangely, when I googled "Emo is the nadir of all music" your blog didn't come up. Maybe you like Emo -- I won't fault you too much!

Jess said...

Emo is fucking terrible. I figure if I don't talk about it, maybe it will go away.
