I got a bit sad so I consulted lolcats.
I'd like you to welcome the Radioactive Cat to the Village Zoo. He has the goggles, but they do nothing...

Crazy cats. You can't love em you can't hate them :)

Hmm how can I cure your melancholy...? how about a joke! yes! a very very bad joke!

Here goes.

*clears throat*

I wandered lonely as a cloud
Down by the river banks
When I trod upon this man's bum
And a woman's voice said. "Thanks."

Phew, hope that helped some.

I must go down to the sea again,
To the lonely sea and sky.
I left my vest and socks there -
I wonder if they're dry.

Apart from the work he did with The Goons, I found an awful lot of his stuff completely baffling - the Q programmes he did for the BBC were often incomprehensible to me. But I thought his war memoirs were marvellous books.

Okay, I get the cat...and the goggles. But I don't get the joke. Yah know, that pretty much sums up my relationship to Brit humor. I get it almost exactly 50 percent of the time. LOL
Hugs and smiles,

The kitty pics are funny by themselves, but it's the language people use on these things that really tickles me. It doesn't always come off, but when it does I think it's very funny.
`The Goggles...they do nothing!' There's just something about the construction of that sentence, the implication of backstory, pasted onto a picture of a cat in goggles, that makes me laugh like a drain. It's the same with lolcthulhu - there's one that's captioned `I Has A Non-Euclidian Geometry. Let Me Show You It,' which just reduced me to helpless laughter. Everyone should talk like that; the world would be a much happier place.

But, yeah, it's probably just Brit humour. :-)

At the risk of butting in, I believe jmward was referring to not getting the joke posted by hunkakleptisisisis which was in the form of a poem.

I be thinkin lolcats is merkin.

Mind you, we do speak like lolcats at our house. Just the other day, our younger asked at dinner, "So what is the Calculus anyway?" Of course, this is the same family that equates algebra to being the abstraction of justice in its purest form. (And yes, I do has a flavor, but only my husband knows for sure...)

I believe I'll let jmward14 pick up that point. I'm sure hundakleptisis and I can mount a muscular defence of British humour, if called upon to do so.

Speaking of which, the Radio 4 version of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency started tonight here, if you're interested. I missed it because I didn't get home until about half seven, but it should be available to listen to for the next week.

Are you sure you mean `merkin...?'

My apologies [again] -- I meant the last comment significantly more innocently than it turned out.
