LOLthots

oh, hai! Jay Dixit ponders the humanity in lolcats (and talks to The New Yorker’s cartoons editor about them):

“By articulating profound feelings through cats and marine mammals
speaking garbled English, we’re able to shroud genuine emotions in
pseudo-irony — which means those animals can evoke deeper emotions
without fear of mockery or cheapness.”
