From this position of relative expertise, I would like to lodge a strong complaint about the quality of the lolcats which have been appearing on ICanHasCheezburger lately. Crafting cat macro isn't really all that difficult. You take a picture of a cat and put a white, block text caption on featuring idiosyncratic but internally consistent spelling and grammar. That's it. It's not hard. But people still have trouble, so allow me to list a few things which are not acceptable lolcat components:
- Speech bubbles
- Motivational poster or 'Breaking News!' formatting
- Full sentences
- Proper grammar/spelling/capitalization
- More than about 10 words
Oh yes, and one more minor point with which people seem to struggle: IF YOUR MACRO CONTAINS ANY ANIMAL WHICH IS NOT A CAT IT IS NOT A GODDAMNED LOLCAT. K. THX. BAI.
