LOLcats and HotDogs

Recently I’ve been looking at the icanhascheezburger site…to laugh. They feature Lolcats and HotDogs

A lolcat is an image combining a photograph of a cat, with a humorous and idiosyncratic caption in English (and usually grammatically incorrect) —a dialect which is known as “lolspeak” or “kitty pidgin” and which parodies the poor grammar you see in internet slang (think a 14-year-old instant messaging).

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]”.

Entertainment Weekly put them on its end-of-the-decade, “best-of” list, saying, “Da cutest distractshun of da decaid? Y, lolcats of corse! We can neber haz enuf of deez capshioned pics of cuddlie kittehs.”

These Lolcat pictures can either be shockingly incorrect on grammar and spelling:

Or they can be just plain funny:

And of course this particular website has not left out the canine species, which are exactly the same as lolcats, only in dog form:
