    Twitter Adds LOLcat Language Setting If That’s Something You’re Interested In

    Look, I'm not going to try and convince you that LOLcats are high art or anything, but they can certainly be amusing when the right moment strikes. Look at that cat over there on the left! Isn't it hilarious how he can't spell? Given that the phenomenon originated on the Internet, it only makes sense that the Internet should embrace it.

    Grumpy Cat’s Out to Ruin Christmas? Not on the LOLCats’s Watch! [Video]

    Is the very thought of having to sit through yet another Christmas special about some mutated reindeer with a case of low self-esteem making you sick to your stomach? Tired of being preached the true meaning of Christmas like we're soulless, materialistic goons? Okay, maybe they're right in that regard, but the point is monotony needs a good kick to the curb this holiday season and no Christmas special kicks harder than How the LOLCats Saved Christmas. True, it is yet another paint-by-numbers bastardization of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, but this iteration has 100% more cats per serving compared to other leading versions of the story. Plus, the cats don't stop to sing every five minutes, so that has to count for something.

    Is This Article About LOLcats the Most Brilliant Troll of All Time, Or Way Behind the Times?

    This article over on The Sun, entitled "Wacky cat pics are a web hit," is an article from today, which happens to fall in the year 2012. The article only has a few sentences written up, followed by a handful of the mentioned "wacky cat pics." As anyone who has an Internet connection knows, these "wacky cat pics" are LOLcats, and have been a cornerstone of the Internet for roughly ever.

    The Day the LOLcats Died [Video]

    In the time-honored fashion of making a parody of American Pie, Chris Parker gets on the YouTube and sings out against SOPA and PIPA. Sure, a little cheesy, but hey, SOPA and PIPA would ruin all the Internets, and Parker and his crew made a song about that.

    The Pirate Bay is Back with Pirate Party Hosting and a Message for RIAA “Assclowns”

    Yesterday, BitTorrent site The Pirate Bay briefly freaked us all out when it went down without warning, but it emerged that its bandwidth provider had been blocked from connecting The Pirate Bay and its servers to the Internet, and the folks behind the site said they were working on it. Now, the site is back and defiant: when you go to thepiratebay.org, you'll see the LOLCat-inspired message above. The biggest revelation, though, may be TPB's new bandwidth provider since CB3ROB backed off: The Pirate Party, the third-largest political party in Sweden.
