You know, I love lolcats (and I'm in loltheorists on LJ), but damn is this getting played out.

I, too, am oddly happy with this. At least it's more readable than Ook.

When I take the non-linked material in your post I get:

ls get but now!

Which is obviously an anagram for:

Blowgun test!

Which naturally makes me think that you are both weird and trying to advance you pro-poisoned tip dart agenda.

I think I may hate lol[blank] even more than I hate All Your Base and I'm in your [blank] [blanking] your [blank], which is saying a lot.

All that is left is for someone to start a page called "Lolcats ate my balls," and the work of the Internet will be complete.

Any language that uses O RLY ? as the conditional operator is okay in my book...

Scowling mod cortex is dismayed to see another goddam lolcats post, but nerdy CS-enthusiast cortex is goddam delighted to see an attempt at a functional formal grammar and an interpreter and everything. I am deeply, deeply conflicted over here.

My god. How lame can it get.

And then I read:
PLZ OPEN FILE "LOLCATS.TXT"?

	O NOES
		INVISIBLE "ERROR!"

Sorry jimmythefish, I'd never seen one on the blue before. It was my first and last -- ever.

I imagine the funniest part has to be listening in on two programmers trying to debug a Lolcat program:

"In UR Subroutine keeps spitting out Moar, the Do Not Want Is broken somewhere."
"Oh, the ORLY? ought to have caught that, and But I Eated It should KTHXBYE before NO MEM LOL kicks in, right?
"Dude! Aggressive Cat is Aggressive but you forgot to add Passive Cat is Passive!"
"Shit. That means the Invisible Bike is broken and Happy Cat never runs out of Happy."
"Damn. Don't forget to fix the O NOES!!! file too."

It's one thing if the subject matter is "cute" Doing it with Star Trek and Presidents (though I must admit some of the Pres ones were funny) is dumb.

Also, when anthropologists, a thousand years from now, are looking at our culture - what the hell will they think when they come across this stuff? They'll probably chalk it up to some form of a cult, which wouldn't be very far from the truth.

Perhaps, but I think more likely they will write us off in the a similar fashion that many historians dismiss the crazy Romans: lead in the pipes (or some such toxicity).

I am so tempted to learn how to change the Python interpreter to accept LOLCATZ input. Change a few words, change a bit of grammar, and shabing!, I'd be pissing myself laughing as I program.

Yes, interpreter for funny langauges are cute, but it's very nice that we've now got a funny langauge suitable for pseudo-code and whiteboarding.

So am I going to have to go to the green to find out how to run this thing?
I've got Python & PLY. I got the lol zip file. I thought I got everything linked. I get the lol> prompt. I tried it in interactive mode:
HAI
VISIBLE l33t
KTHKBYE

- when I type NO MOAR, I get syntax errors.

Is this a complete hoax and I'm the only one who fell for it?
posted by MtDewd at 8:30 AM on May 30, 2007


Do you has a var l33t?
Can you spells "kthxbye"?
posted by thecaddy at 9:59 AM on May 30, 2007


YA I can spells KTHXBYE, just not in my comment.
No, I did not HAS A VAR.

Tried that and it did not work.
I still get Syntax error at token ID

I don't know anything about Python so (as the PLY link says) I shouldn't even be there. I had problems with the import of lex and yacc but I thought I had that figured out.

I'll wait for the 'Dummies' book to come out.

Thanks.

Doog dog, they've got a BNF for it now, and it can be interpreted by someone's parser!

There's also a shedload of contributed code samples now.

I LOLd until I stopped.
