It irritates me that the lik-the-bred meme is devolving into i can haz cheezburger cat speak. The original is phonetically spelled with obvious influence (connecting back to the origin story) of Middle/Old English, like Chaucer. A version I just found uses “cuz da fire natin” and “mai gurlfrend” and it just makes the hobbyist linguist in me really miffed.
shiro and hunk are the type of people to genuinely love old cat memes like "i can haz cheeseburger" and grumpy cat
For the holidays they gift each other those inspirational cat posters and both frame them and hang them in their rooms.
“Hang in there, buddy,” Shiro whispers to himself every morning as he looks at the poster of a ginger cat hanging from a tree. The longer he stares at the poster, the stronger and more invigorated he feels. He will hang in there. This kitten believes in him; Shiro can do this.
the year is 2015 and I just introduced my husband to lolcats and long cat and a bunch of other old ass memes he has never heard of and he was laughing hysterically at Photoshops of long cat. 2015 people. He had never heard of ceiling cat, grumpy cat or even I can haz cheezburger.
what if cats were the sentient ones, and we were the animalistic ones? what if cats looked at human videos on youtube, cat bloggers took photos of and blogged about their humans, and cats had “i can haz cat food?” memes instead of the cheezeburger memes,?
instead of anime cat girls, they’d have human girls (cats with human ears and no tails, maybe even human hands too)
certain female cats would grow up to be “human ladies”, having multiple humans in their home.
