What’s so great about lolcats?

I’ll never understand the obsession some people have with lolcats.  Joe Carter at Evangelical Outpost is a good example of someone with an appreciation for the “artform”; occasionally featuring some of his favorites in his blog.

I guess the problem is that I don’t like cats and I  don’t like horribly misspelled words, both of which are firmly entrenched properties of lolcat-ism. Examples: “Sav urselfs, food r eatin me”, and “I can haz cheezburger?”  Sometimes the grammar and spelling are reminiscent of Pidgin.

This is why I have serious misgivings about myself on the many times the stupid little pictures elicit a quick chuckle.
