23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
Gentleman Troper!It's a Lol Cat, not much to say here.
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Pro-PinkistBut it's so cute! @____@ It breaks my heart to pull it, but...
Hi. I'm the guy who started this article (though I didn't pick the image) and I believe the image was fitting. Anti Humor is about averting a standard joke. The more familiar the joke, generally the more effective the aversion. This anti-lolcats image worked just fine. Pretty much any image you get if going to be an aversion of some kind of cliched humor that you probably don't like in its standard form.

Pro-PinkistLolcats and demotivators are prohibited as page images, I'm afraid.
Ok. Just read the image picking guidelines and yes I know lolcats is specifically named as a type of image that isn't appropriate most of the time. Emphasis on most I think this is one of the exceptions. They have a rule against lolcats probably because they're so numerous but its precisely that quality that makes an anti-lolcats a good illustration of anti-humor.
Another Wizard boyActually, the rule is there because Fast Eddie doesn't like them. It's him you have to convince.
Pro-PinkistNo, I'm afraid that's not the case. All meme based pictures are to be immediately pulled, whether fit or not. It was written into IP rules some time ago. It's one of those no exception cases.

Ok. Well, good luck. Its not terribly easy to find a good image that illustrates anti-humor.
Are lolcats so offensive that we have to strike them from the page before we have a viable replacement?

With Mod Hat OnAgain, yes, any meme-based image is an insta-pull criteria unless the page is specifically about a certain meme or memes from a certain medium.
Well, I'll defer to the distinguished gentleman with the different colored post and all the badges. Again, I wish you luck. Its a shame we're stuck at the moment without an image but I can understand how lolcats are grating for many fellow tropers. Thank you for indulging my curiosity.

Not that the macro was bad, per se, just unlawful.
