Rachel Maclean - Lolcats @ Generator Projects 05.10.12

The term Lolcats was first used on the anonymous online image board 4chan in 2005. Users post photos of cats alongside brief, misspelled texts. The disjuncture between these two elements creates an element of humour in the image macros. Lol is an abbreviation for laugh out loud, which is commonly used in internet slang. The domain name was registered in 2006, and Google Insights traces the peak of Lolcats searches to early 2008. I Can Has Cheezburger? (ICHC for short) is a weblog featuring lolcats, and Ben Huh, CEO of The Cheezburger Network, explains their appeal: "Cats have very expressive facial and body expressions, so they are a perfect canvas for human emotion, which makes them awesome for captioning and anthropomorphisation."
