I was reminded of this when I started talking about LOLcats the other day and saw that all-too-familiar look on my girlfriend’s face. After a miserable attempt at explaining the phenomenon, meme even, I turned to the internet and found more explanation than I can shake a stick at. Of course, you really have to experience it for yourself. Here’s the most succinct exposure to this I could find:

    Boing Boing has an update on the historical roots of the LOLcats phenomenon from 1900s comics that seems a little too incredible to be believed, in my opinion, but it’s brilliant nonetheless. See also Historical LOLcats Flickr discussion.
