Sara’s Friday Finds

Remember when Tela talked about how some of our co-workers have a thing for cat calendars? I thought of that when I heard about lolcats. Lolcats are hard to describe – they’re like calendar cats, only the captions are in gamerspeak. The effect is sort of like if your cat were actually talking to you, and when I first saw these things, I laughed my butt off. I guess the best way to appreciate lolcats is to check them out. So head on over to http://www.icanhascheezburger.com/ and start skimming the pages. Does anybody else think these are hilarious, or am I just weird?
