Translating the Bible into lolspeak - LOLCat Bible
Pop17 has an interview with Martin Grondin, the man behind the LOLCat Bible. A LOLCat, if you’re not familiar, is “an image combining a photograph of an animal, most frequently a cat, with a humorous and idiosyncratic caption in (often) broken English—a dialect which is known as ‘Kitty Pidgin’, ‘lolspeak’, or Lolcat.” And what Martin is doing, in case it isn’t obvious, is translating the Bible into lolspeak. You can find the results here.Here’s a snippet from Genesis to whet your appetite.
