Lolcats

Estava na altura de esclarecer isto. O que são afinal Lolcats? Para quem não sabe, fica a explicação via artigo da Wikipedia. Eu não inventei o termo; já é muito conhecido. Só não explico por palavras minhas, porque a minha ligação anda péssima... Graças à Clix e à central de S. Mamede.. Sem telefone (e, consequentemente, net) em casa.. :S

Lolcats, a compound of LOL and cat, are photos of cats with humorous captions. They are a type of image macro, and are thus also referred to as cat macros. Lolcats are created for the purpose of sharing them with others on imageboards and other internet forums, especially on Saturdays ("Caturdays").

Lolcat images usually consist of a photo of a cat with a caption characteristically formatted in a sans serif font such as Impact or Arial Black. The image is, on occasion, photoshopped for effect. The caption generally acts as a speech balloon encompassing a comment from the cat, or is a simple description of the depicted scene. The caption is intentionally written with deviations from standard English spelling and syntax featuring "strangely-conjugated verbs, but [a tendency] to converge to a new set of rules in spelling and grammar." These altered rules of English have been described as a type of pidgin or baby talk. The text is frequently in the form of a snowclone parodying the grammar-poor patois stereotypically attributed to internet slang.

Lolcats are similar to other animal-based image macros, such as the O RLY? owl and captioned pictures of walruses (lolruses), elephant seals, dogs, hamsters, birds, and rabbits. The format is popular enough to have spread to subjects as diverse as United States Presidents, robots, and tapirs.
