All right, I’m going to be an ass here. There’s just no point to this if there are no pictures of cats to look at. The lolcat pidgin isn’t that interesting in and of itself. Lolcats took off in the first place because everyone likes to pretend that their cat has thoughts and feelings and is trying to talk to them when they meow, and because everyone likes looking at pictures of cute kitties. But this text-only stuff? Do not want.

Eliot got teh catz out of his system with "Ol' Possum's Book of Practical Cats," which was turned into the musical called... well, make a wild guess. Rendering that book in LOLcats would be like meta-LOLcats.
