The LOLcats craze pretty much passed me by. LOLcats are cute, sometimes funny, but they get on my nerves after awhile. Other folks have a lot more patience than I have. Volunteers are translating the Bible into LOLcat-speak. And I have to admit, it’s pretty funny in parts — the translation, I mean.
Here’s an excerpt. Adam an Eve (bad kittehs) meet teh snake.
GENESIS 3: Bad Kittehs
1 Nao teh snakez wuz mor shneakay than any beest ov teh field which Ceiling Cat had made. An he meowed unto teh woah man kitteh, liek I herd that Ceiling Cat said, u shall not eated frum any tree ov teh garden? Even dem trees on dat plate?
