What's the point? -- Surely, by now you have heard of the lolcat phenomenon, in which people post pictures of animals and append funny captions, typically badly spelled and full of grammatical problems. Oftentimes, the results are hilarious, sometimes lame, but nearly always adorable.

What to look for --This site is a clearinghouse for such pictures. There are new ones each day, and everything is tagged, so if you want, you can see just fat cats or just kittens or just ferrets or whatever. (Yes, ferrets. Though they're called lolcats, the label holds for just about any animal once a goofy caption has been applied.)
