Radioactive Baby Jebus is Radioactive and other food for thought, as you ponder whether or not the whole LOLcat thing is played out completely.

I went to a Christian restaurant the other day and I was surprised at how nice it was. No one was yelling "MF-er, I want more grape juice and crackers!" It was just like eating at a normal atheist restaurant.

I was thinking about posting this, and then I thought, "Isn't this LOL thing so played out that at this point only the reanimated corpse of Oscar Wilde could make it funny again?" Then I thought, "No, it's not played out at all." Then I woke up from my crazy dream and didn't post this.

That's because nobody f*cked Baby Jebus' mother.

seriously, i wonder if LOLx is the new Great White Hope, previously promised - but not quite delivered - by hipster irony, post-irony & meta-irony, whereby everything & anything is reduced to a level playing field of absurdist moral, intellectual & aesthetic non-value...?

Yes! Exactly. It'll all sign and no signifier, so when you try to find the signified you end up with almost nothing. If irony is one where you say one thing but mean another, then this is where you say one thing and mean nothing.

Lolcats: "We're bigger than Jebus now."

After a provocative magazine interview in which Icanhas Cheeseburger claimed his meme is more popular Jebus Christ among US teenagers, LolXtians from across the USA are demanding a boycott of their pictures.

The Reverend Fred Felch of the Westboro Babtist Church was among the protesters. He said "God hates lolcats, and this blasphemy shows you why. You're all going to hell."

"Also, I has a collection bucket. Nooo! they be stealin' my collection buckit."

PostIronyEtc: interesting full circle! If I'm not mistaken, "I'm in yr X, Y-ing yr Zs" originated from multiplayer online first person shooter games, where somebody might type a "where are you?" message, and receive the reply "I'm in yr base, killin yr doodz!" (sniping away at the other players as they regenerate in the base after being killed?).

So, art imitates life imitates art, and somebody posts "congrats on the high score" in response to the LOLmassacre.

LOLCAT EXCITES EVERYTHING

LOLCAT knows everything. LOLCAT spits everything out.

BUT . . . . . . . . .

HAS LOLCAT EVER SPOKEN TO YOU:

about Italy
about accordions
about women's pants
about the fatherland
about sardines
about Fiume
about Art (you exaggerate my friend)
about gentleness
about D'Annunzio
what a horror
about heroism
about mustaches
about lewdness
about sleeping with Verlaine
about the ideal (it's nice)
about Massachusetts
about the past
about odors
about salads
about genius, about genius, about genius
about the eight-hour day
about the Parma violets

NEVER NEVER NEVER

LOLCAT doesn't speak. LOLCAT has no fixed idea. LOLCAT doesn't catch flies.

THE MINISTRY IS OVERTURNED. BY WHOM?

BY LOLCAT

The Futurist is dead. Of What? Of LOLCAT

A Young girl commits suicide. Because of What? LOLCAT
The spirits are telephoned. Who invented it? LOLCAT
Someone walks on your feet. It's LOLCAT
If you have serious ideas about life,
If you make artistic discoveries
and if all of a sudden your head begins to crackle with laughter,
If you find all your ideas useless and ridiculous, know that

IT IS LOLCAT BEGINNING TO SPEAK TO YOU

cubism constructs a cathedral of artistic liver paste
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
expressionism poisons artistic sardines
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
simultaneism is still at its first artistic communion
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
futurism wants to mount in an artistic lyricism-elevator
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
unanism embraces allism and fishes with an artistic line
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
neo-classicism discovers the good deeds of artistic art
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
paroxysm makes a trust of all artistic cheeses
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
ultraism recommends the mixture of these seven artistic things
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?
creationism vorticism imagism also propose some artistic recipes
WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?

WHAT DOES LOLCAT DO?

50 francs reward to the person who finds the best
way to explain LOLCAT to us

LOLCAT passes everything through a new net.
LOLCAT is the bitterness which opens its laugh on all that which has been made consecrated forgotten in our language in our brain in our habits.
It says to you: There is Humanity and the lovely idiocies which have made it happy to this advanced age

LOLCAT HAS ALWAYS EXISTED
THE HOLY VIRGIN WAS ALREADY A LOLCATIST

LOLCAT IS NEVER RIGHT

Citizens, comrades, ladies, gentlemen

Beware of forgeries!

Imitators of LOLCAT want to present LOLCAT in an artistic form which it has never had

CITIZENS,

You are presented today in a pornographic form, a vulgar and baroque spirit which is not the PURE IDIOCY claimed by LOLCAT

BUT LOLDOGMATISM AND PRETENTIOUS IMBECILITY

LOLCAT is really just a humour format. You can say "oh, it's played out", but it's a silly and ridiculous thing to say.
