'''[=LOLcats=]''' are an Internet meme which is best described as the lovechild of {{Cute Kitten}}s and MemeticMutation. Lolcats are {{Image Macro}}s that combine photos of cats with humorous captions, usually in a form of [[YouNoTakeCandle broken english]] known as "kitty pidgin" or "lolspeak". It should be noted that using bad spelling as humour is [[OlderThanTheyThink hardly a new phenomenon.]] And the practice of combining [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sepia_lolcat.jpg cats with funny captions]], goes back even further. However, the modern-day phenomenon of [=LOLcats=] originates from the ImageBoard Website/FourChan, where every Saturday users posted funny pictures of kitties, a practice called "Caturday". This didn't become a sensation until the launching of the website [[http://icanhascheezburger.com I Can Has Cheezburger?]] which takes its name from [[https://thecynicalrobloxranters.wordpress.com/lolcats-the-history/ this popular image.]] (scroll down a little bit)

* WilyWalrus: Zig-zagged with Lolrus, simply because his personality and appearance vary DependingOnTheWriter. In the original picture, he was portrayed as a lovable [[InformedSpecies elephant seal]] obsessed with his favorite bucket (or as he calls it, "bukkit"). Whether or not a Lolrus picture is of an actual walrus, the character is still usually portrayed as a benevolent creature looking for bukkits. Others play this trope straight by presenting Lolrus as violent and demanding.
