NEWS: LOLCAT Bible: “Ceiling Cat sayed, i can has lightz”

'Ceiling Cat' (aka God)

'Ceiling Cat' (aka God)

Nearly the entire bible (old and new testaments) has now been translated into ‘lolcat’ internet language. For those of you without the first clue what a lolcat even is, it is a prevalent internet craze whereby people upload pictures of their pets, adding some text in an imagined ‘cutesy’ cat-speak. It’s easier demonstrated than explained – see I Can Has Cheezburger for endless examples.

For example,

My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother
(Proverbs 1:8)

Becomes:

Lissen to ur pop, and do wut ur momma sez, srsly.

This joins both the Lego Bible, and the Manga Bible as another example of how the internet reflects and parodies religious practice.

  1. lolcats Bible? Hmm. They’re annoying in general so I can’t imagine wading through a Bibles-worth of them. But the manga Bible? That’s not a parody, that’s awesome! What a great way to begin to connect people to God. I absolutely love it.
