[REVIEW] I Can Has Cheezburger – Professor Happycat &

Professor Happycat &
I Can Has Cheezburger?: A LOLcat Colleckshun
Penguin Gotham (US: 7th October 2008; CA: 6th November 2008); Hachette Hodder & Stoughton (UK: 16th October 2008; AU: December 2008)

First a popular website, now comes I Can Has Cheezburger? – a coffee table book to keep your guests amused.

Eric Nakagawa and Karl Unebasami cofounded I Can Has Cheezburger almost two years ago. A LOLcat is an image of a cat with a caption, usually with deliberately bad grammar and atrocious spelling. Indeed, you may have to read some slowly to properly understand. However, if cats really could speak, I imagine they’d be the sophisticated types looking down upon you with their vast vocabulary and correct writing fundamentals. But what would I know? That’s why the prestigious Professor Happycat pops up every now and then with a handy explanation for those not in the know.

One can blow through the book in about 10 minutes, yet all the important topics are included: food, economics, the workplace, etc. And you’re sure to find a LOLcat to show how you’re feeling…Speaking of which, here’s mine (from here):

2 cats in one photo – the mind boggles…

Off to stare at the Razor Girl cover some more…


Photo of Melanie Nilles‘s cat Harlee. LOL by me. You may recognise Harlee as the same cat on the background of my Twitter page.

LOL – ur doin it rite

NowPublic have done another article on LOLcats, and requested to use some of mine. Including ‘s Kippy, ‘s Suzy and ‘s Harlee. And one of Manny with Kat Richardson’s Poltergeist. (“CAT – ur spellin it rong.”) These are just some of the hundreds of LOLcats on the article’s slideshow. See here.

What someone typed into Google to get to my WordPress: writing with a russian accent
Nup, I don’t write with a Russian accent, so I can’t help you there. But Russian accents are nifty, though.

Since I was tagged:

1. Pick up the nearest book of at least 123 pages.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

I think that means to post the fifth, sixth and seventh sentences on the page.

“I swear.”

It took long enough that I got worried, but finally he opened the door and called me over. He hadn’t rolled down the window because I had the keys and the windows were electric.

Laura Anne Gilman recently hosted a contest for entrants to turn her cat photos into LOLcats. I didn’t win anything, but these were my entries. Not sure why Pandora looks so miserable atop her manuscript stack…

I Can Has LOLcode

I Can Has LOLcode: Check out the slideshow that accompanies this article – they asked (and received) permission to use four of my LOLcats. Thanks to Nikki, Mel and Jodi for the use of their cat photos, and thanks to Suzy, Padme and Kippy for deigning to be photographed.

I’ve added some new titles (including ones by Rachel Caine and Jocelynn Drake) to my Reading Wishlist.

Now, to await the cat’s homecoming for photography, and resisting the urge to buy crisps…

LOLcat & WordPress

Original photo. Suzy decided to claim her owner Nicole’s laptop, and thus she inspired this LOLcat.

Mega-thanks to everyone who visited my WordPress yesterday (Tuesday 8th July). You gave me my highest page visits in one day: 223. Considering the previous best was 177, this was quite a jump. Here were the most visited pages:
