LOL geology

2007-07-09 14:17:39.768893+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

So y'all have undoubtedly seen LOLCats, right? Anil Dash deconstructs the grammar of LOLCats. Even though the silly captions for pictures of cats meme has spawned a programming language, I haven't linked to it here because... well... I guess I was kind of hoping it would just go away. I almost took note of it with LOL metal, misspelled IM code captions for metal bands, but it was I CAN HAS FAULTLINE, or LOL geology that finally pushed me over the edge.

So, I'm confused. Have I gained (for not hearing about the mainstream coverage) or lost (for somehow missing it online) geek cred for not knowing what LOLCats is all about?
