Who's pushing this shiat?

/ stupid cat pics with stupid shiat written on them are years old... they caught on, became a fad, disappeared... only to resurface again after the whole owl thing rans it's course. Why is this news? Better yet, why the fark is it green?

Okay, since you're obviously not new here, do I really have to say it?

It's not NEWS, it's Fark.com.

h3lx: why the fark is it green

Because it mentions Fark, and god forbid the readers of this site didn't know every time the site gets a mention somewhere else.

The local newspaper editor asked me the other day about LOLcats. He mentioned that it's been all over the media, and wanted to know if I knew anything about them. I suppose it's because I'm the only tech savvy human at the church, and also one of few under 50.

So, I explained the whole thing to him. I started with a history of steganography, and how the pictures are used to hide child pornography. I went on about how the whole LOLcat subculture is currently being co-opted by Al Qaeda to send hidden messages, and thus the recent uptick in messages with really, really inane statements. Those darn brown people just can't learn our language.

Ahh, good ole' North Cackylacky. I'm just waiting for that article to hit Fark...

Since this isn't going green until Saturday, I got nothing.

I wonder what I would have thought that headline meant if I read it 20 years ago.

mediaho: I wonder what I would have thought that headline meant if I read it 20 years ago.

I would have cracked up at the very idea that anyone would name anything "BoingBoing."

So, my neighbor likes to shoot the neighbor hood cats with his bb-gun -- anyone care to comment on legality issues?

He is just really pissed because the neighbor feeds all the feral cats and they use his house as their toilet.

/I prefer the paintball gun -- that way, when I see them a week later I LOL@Cat.

crypticsatellite: Fark is mainstream?

I thought it was radical, became mainstream, faded out as a bad fad, and now back as retro-cool.
