There is a profound movement that in recent years has changed the way everyone uses and understands the web. I am talking, of course, about lolcats.

Very clever. I wonder if we will end up with a lolcat for each major policy?

Tonight I realised the natural progression of this theme: the LOLjimbo.

Jimmy is a natural. And that, I suppose, could be considered an extension of lolgeeks. It never ends.
