Caturday & Coffee

Many who know me are painfully aware I thrive on silliness. Be that a blessing or curse (and let me assure you it can be both), I am compelled to jump on the silly train more often than not. It is a force not to be denied.

It has become a routine, a favorite habit, a Saturday morning coffee ritual: Caturday! Perusing cat pictures. Cat pictures with captions: lolcats, internet silliness at its finest. My current favorites, let me show you them.


Enjoyment of cat-speak can require putting aside one's grammar-nazi ways. I've learned to roll with it on Caturday.

Let's try some kitten-speak:




Did you giggle? Say "awwwwww"? The cute factor gets me every time. I'm a sucker for cute. (My girlfriend, have you met her?)

Some kitties are more literate.




This next photo has made the rounds with many different captions, but this one, well, I consider it near lolcat perfection:


So what's the point? They make me laugh. Felines exude personality and are endlessly photogenic. The folks who caption them add icing to cake. Kudos to the creators! The sheer silliness pleases me greatly.

Last Caturday, fresh off a dose of lolcats with the chuckles still reverberating, I chanced to peruse a set of childhood pictures a friend posted online. I came across a photo that instantly reminded me of this:


I was compelled to create this.



It just couldn't be helped.
I'm certain the featured child will understand.

Oh, yeah! Anudder cheezburger luvr! Woo-hoo!! Lolcats make my day, and I go there as often as possible. I now caption my own pictures, just for fun (if you have pets, it's almost impossible not to).

jennifer said...

Thanks for today's best laughs - particularly enjoyed the final pokemon creation! How DID you read her mind from that distance of space and time?

I just found that site recently, and I was sucked in for hours. It's the "capshonz" and how perfectly they seem to express what's going on in the pictures that make them so funny.

Loved your interpretation.
