I am not impressed with lolcats

[ #37484 ]

Today I finally went to the trouble to figure out what the heck these silly cat images are. The term is lolcats.

Personally, I just think it's stupid. If you think the images are cute, great. I like cats, and cute cat pictures. I do not like having people attempt to address serious subjects on serious newsblogs I like with these pictures as commentary. What is happening here is a reduction of people's capacity to effectively communicate the message they want to convey. They are so obsessed with the results of their neurons repeatedly firing off random interest in these pictures that they can't think of another way to say what they want to say, apparently. Meanwhile, I guess the rest of us aren't "hip" and "mod" since we don't know (or care) what the point of these images are.

I'll be glad when interest in this fades.
