Another of my silly captions has made the front page at ihasahotdog.com. I've also had another couple of front pages on the new lolhistory site; I didn't post them here because I'm trying to avoid becoming a lolhistory bore. If you're interested, the two most recent ones (along with the others) can be seen at: http://historiclols.cheezburger.com/?s=
Sound the tiny fanfare once again for the most irrelevant triumph in the world. (Subject matter-wise, my last lolcat front page, with its references to The Seventh Seal and The Devil Came to Georgia, would have made a better number thirteen, but this poor little guy over on ihasahotdog.com gets that honour instead.)
As some of you may already be aware, I've recently fallen into the bad habit of adding silly captions to pictures on the cheezburger.com sites.
The day before yesterday, I captioned a couple of pictures which I thought were simply amazing, which quickly resulted in my becoming "cheezfriends" (I know, I know!) with the person who'd uploaded the photos to the site, and my discovery this morning that the pictures are actually stills from a video.
First, here's the video:
Here's the blog where I found it (it's a cat's blog, of course), and where you can find links to various other sites, including the cat's own youtube channel (every cat should have one!):
And on the off-chance anyone's interested, you can see the captions I added to a couple of the video stills at:
I've done enough of these over the last few weeks, I could post one every day for the next couple of months. (Don't worry, I won't. But I do have a certain fondness for this one, even if I did write the caption myself. And note that after my recent problems with the embedding cutting off the bottom of some recent pictures, as a precautionary measure I put the caption across the top this time.)
Just over one week ago (last Sunday) I finally figured out how to use the lolbuilder thingy on cheezburger.com and captioned a photo for the first time. And -- as I may have already mentioned here once or twice ;) -- once I'd figured out how to do it, I did a few more. And then I thought: I'd better stop this, because it's addictive and a waste of time. I didn't do any for a few days, and then yesterday I thought: well, maybe I'll do just one.
So last night I logged onto the site to be greeted with the news that total strangers had been "favoriting" some of my captions (some of them "favoriting" more than one). And even though I think "favoriting" is a terrible word, I must admit I was a little chuffed as I hadn't expected anyone to even notice they were there, let alone select any of them as favourites.
As far as I can tell, the picture below is the one that's been "favorited" (another terrible word!) the most. Which surprises me as I'd thought the caption was a bit... obvious. But what do I know?
So here's one I wasn't going to inflict upon you, but have finally decided to post on the basis that some other people apparently liked it:
