And then when the Bible is fully translated into this lolcat pidgin, what happens then? What do you do with the finished product? Hope that one day Christian missionaries discover an island inhabited by talking cats that need saving?

It is! See Genesis for confirmation.

And Ecclesiastes comes out particularly well:

"St00pid! St00pid!" Sez teh teechurcat. "Srsly st00pid. Everythingz ghey."

So true!

Y'know, I love lolcats. Love 'em as much as anybody, but isn't the whole point the juxtaposition of absurdist captions with adorable pictures?

Could they please do that now? I mean, it's clearly much more important. Srsly. Goddamn muslim's have got no sense of humor about their damn book or their damn prophet. Oughta make it a picture book while they're at it...

Maybe originally. But now it's clearly just cute. And in that offensive manner of the fatlady in your office who has photos of other peoples' babies on her desk. Look closely, because she also will have a calendar that's basically lolcats bullshit-- a cat looking away from the camera with the caption "I don't do Mondays" or a shih tsu with a bonnet on asking "how can I be overdrawn? I still have checks left!" Those are "absurdist" captions too.

On the internet, first they came for the cats, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a cat;
And then they came for the 80s, And I didn't speak up because I wasn't an 80s pop star;
And then they came for the theists; And I didn't speak up because I wasn't a theist.
And then, they comez 4 me, And by thiz time we woz all LOLcreatures.

WHEN WILL IT END.
MAKE IT STOP, MAKE IT STOP.

the problem with the lolcats schtick is that it just doesn't translate well to sentences that are more than two simple independent clauses.

Or:

"Joseph was all liek 'Oh snap'."

There's a guy I know who actually says "oh snap!" where you or I might use an expletive. And I mean all the time. I had no idea he was speaking in lolcat. I thought he was just creeping me out with his cuss lackage.

Well, he may have cuss lackage but his usage is appropriate and common, according to the learned authorities at urbandictionary. The term goes back a lot farther than I realized.

Of course, now "oh, snap" is all watered down as an invective, having appeared in an unlikely TV commercial. The LOLCats are behind the curve on this one.
