December 3, 2008 (b): Antique LOLcat

Attachment 20617

According to icanhascheezburger*:

Quote:
This captioned cat picture postcard was found by Tracy Angulo in a Seattle antique store. Tracy tells us that the photograph is from 1905, which would make this officially the oldest cat picture with a caption, AKA lolcat, that weíve seen.

The differences are clear. Proper grammar and a more formal tone was in vogue back then. But the similarities to modern-day kitten struggles and lolcats are amazing. ALL CAPS is still cool, but most importantly, she also no can has cheezburger. More than a hundred years later, all thatís changed is the spelling.

Evekitteh, we hope you got a good dinner.

I hate to say it but I am a closet fan of lolcats. I visit that page everyday about 15 minutes before I visit this one.

This is my favorite one in a long time.

Sorry for screwing up the thread title

And it could legitimately be December 4th, cause it was after midnight when I posted it (my time, anyway). Thanks for the fix, Oh moderators, and leave it however you like.

What, you expect an antique lolcat to be compatible with modern technology?
