Meow Laughs

I intend to blog about about some low-cholesterol dishes I've been making lately as part of what I have come to think of as the Great Cholesterol Lowering Experiment (you say that in a big booming voice).

One of these meals, which was surprisingly tasty, is a vegetarian lasagne with lentils. While I get my act together I offer you this LOLCat for your amusement:

I've had that LOLCat pinned in my Bloglines for sometime now in anticipation of the lasagne post, but clearly my desire to share it with the two people who don't obsessively refresh their feedreaders for new LOLCat chortles is greater than my impulse to write a post about saturated fat-free food.

Today I came across this LOLCat and it also must be shared. Check out that expression:

Actually this cat reminds me a bit of dogpossum's Squeeze, and it's just the kind of thing he might say too. (That is a compliment, really!)

N.B. There is no significance to be found in the juxtaposition of the lasagne LOLCat and the barfing LOLCat.

The number of LOLcats appearing on academic blogs sometimes does my head in.

I encountered them first on discussion boards and livejournal/blogger comms; I find their migration to aca-blogs inherently funny. :P

What made you think this was an academic blog? : P

There are some days when it's all I can do to look at anything in my feed reader but LOLCats. I think that's probably why academic types use them in blogs. The thought process goes something like this:

'I really should do a blog post. Oh the crushing weight of responsibility. I can't string a coherent sentence together outside of my research/administrivia/teaching/marking, I am so exhausted... Oh, look at that funny LOLCat. Oh. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Cue hysterical sobbing. *Wipes tears away* I must share this with my reader'.

LOL (of course).

Oh, I wholly support the posting of LOLcats, particularly when they're there in place of turgid academic prose ==> not meaning yours here - yours is engaging and shiny and fun; not very aca at all... ;)

What gets me sometimes are acas shoe-horning 'hip-ness' into their blog by LOLcatting...that's a phenomenon in itself!
