btw, does anyone know where I can find a decent online English-LoLcat dictionary? The closest thing I could find is the LoLcat Bible translation project.

thx.

Not as annoying as people who wear Ché shirts, or display his iconography, without knowing both the history of the person, his actions (both positive and negative) and the complete irony that the systems he fought against enable these same people to buy, wear, and display his icon.

But you wouldn't get that, would you?

It's difficult for me to understand as an immigrant even with english parents and an english speaking background.

Sometimes it's like trying to understand either the bayou/creole caricature that some US comedians do or Brad Pitt in Snatch, whichever is more difficult.

edit: and don't get me started on cockney, mockney, brummie and scouse.

'bump'



sorry, but I really had to salvage this thread. I still don't know what I need to know - and would just have started another one at some point.


Pls, ppl -- an English<-->LoLcats dictionary? Anyone know of one? Any suggestions..?


And yes.. sorry, I was apparently away when this whole thing swept up the internets. I am still captivated by it like many of you 'once' were. So pls.. 'relate'. k? -?



k thx. (bai).
