Finally, a caption…

Finally, I figured out a caption for this photo:

Peabo in Lolcat mode

This is a photo of my friend Katie’s cat Peabo. As you can see, he’s gotten himself into a case of beer. And it only took Katie and I a month and a half to come up with this caption. When she first sent this to me in mid-September, I immediately saw Lolcat potential for it, but couldn’t figure out a caption. I at first thought of “I can haz beer?” for it, but that’s too much like the oft-used “I can haz cheezburger?” line. Katie and I even did a little brainstorming on the phone last night and came up empty.

Then today, Katie sent the perfect caption: “Where’s the beer? I can’t find it, it’s not here!” I ran it through the Lolcat translator, and got, “Wherez teh ber? I cant find it, iz not her!” Then I dropped the second part of it, and put it in the proper Impact font, and on the image. And one lolcat image. Pretty clever, no?

Quote: By the way, an update for you... according to The Straight Dope, I appear to be right about mailing a cinderblock with a reply envelope. It seems that while it's a good fantasy, it's a bad idea to actually mail a cinderblock with a reply envelope. According to this article, when a Business Reply Mail envelope is used as a shipping label like that, it ultimately is treated as waste by the post office and tossed. Thus it costs the USPS money, and not the intended victim. And you might get charged with "abuse of the mails" according to the article. Drat... (or as my high school Latin teacher once said, "oh shucky darn")
