Fans of LOLCats can exhale: The "I Can Has Cheezburger" book, which culls individual LOLCats from the famous Website of the same name, is about to hit bookstore shelves.
If you're a big fan of LOLCats like me, then you probably are very familiar with Icanhascheezburger.com, a community site where the most active practitioners of the phenomenon involving funny pictures of cats mixed with odd, badly spelled phrases ply their trade daily.
To the uninitiated, LOLCats can be hard to decipher, especially given that many of them are subtle meta references to the phenomenon itself. So regular Icanhascheezburger.com visitors are well-versed in phrases involving things like "Ceiling Cat" "I'm in ur," “...ur doing it wrong" and so on.
Over the last year-and-a-half, the site has become massively popular, with tens of millions of monthly visitors and even a series of spin-off sites, all in spite of the fact that it was hardly the originator of the phenomenon.
The creators of the site have cobbled together several dozen LOLCats from the site into I Can Has Cheezburger? the book. A slick little volume subtitled, “A LOLCat colleckshun,” it features the famous fluffy gray cat so familiar to fans of the site on the cover.
