Inadvertent Lazymeme Clearinghouse Lamentations

Following up on Cats, Comics and Closure, Meowchat and PetSpeak (which, surprisingly, came up during a panel on race and class on Friday), and of course Cats can has grammar, I've rediscovered the bizarre things that happen after a couple hundred thousand people stumble across a blog post.

Chief among the unexpected results is that I've become a reluctant dumping ground for people who want to share their lolwhatever sites with me. Please note: I am not asking you to send me more. Doesn't mean I don't like them, or that I won't look at the links you send; Some of them are interesting. But, being fully employed, married, and relatively sane, I couldn't possibly check out all the fascinating, inane, and useless web memes that have popped up around lolcats and image macros.

If you want to get a feel for what the realm looks like, here's a random sampling:

ran out of staples

And that's all I have to say about that subject for now.
