Lolcats

Every now and again I come across a newsgroup where someone has posted a picture—usually of a cat—with a funny caption superimposed on it. I finally tumbled to the fact that they were known colloquially as 'Lolcats' (or Laugh out Loud cats, for those who don't speak Internet Acronym), and were from a site called (for reasons I've never investigated) I Can Has Cheezburger.

The site is updated with new pictures every day, and they're almost always good for a laugh (not to mention a treat for people who like pictures of cats). Here are some of my favourites:

Humorous Picturescat

There are hundreds more; when you have a spare minute or two, drop by and have a laugh.

The colour/grayscale/matte picture is particularly good.

I was lost for quite a while on these. Somewhere there is even a collection of LOLCthulus & that was the first time I became aware of it as a phenom, because I had to have somebody explain it to me. I think I'd enjoy them more if the pics were more often clearly related to the captions, but then I'm very literal minded.
