"LOLCcat Bible Translation" so dumb it's funny

I cannot believe somebody took the time to do all this.

http://www.lolcatbible.com/index.php?title=Genesis_1

http://www.lolcatbible.com/index.php?title=Matthew_1

Everybody likes funny cat pics right? Unless you're a hardcore dog-lover, or have had bad experiences with cats. Anyway, there is an internet subculture devoted to funny cat pictures with captions called "lolcats". And apparently a group of people have translated the. entire. bible. into what can only be described as "lolcat speech"

The link begins on Genesis 1, but take a look at your favorite verses and see how they turned out.

The philosophy of the site can be found under the guidelines, but it goes as follows,

" The philosophy behind the LOLCat Bible can be summarised as:
As fun as possible, no more misleading than necessary.
At all times, remember that you're trying to produce a translation that's understandable by cats. In particular:
Cats like having fun. Keep the translation fun.
Cats have short attention spans. Use short sentences, and feel free to skim the more tedious bits, such as lists of "begats".
Prefer references to things that cats would understand. A typical domestic cat probably hasn't seen a desert tent, but they have probably seen a sofa."

Also, a warning to anybody with sensitive eyes, or a thick respect of the English language before reading.

Thoughts?

And that, brothers and sisters, is the kind of foolishness you get people who insist on denying biblical theism. A good illustration of any as the length people will go to avoid acknowledging basic truths.

lolcats are my guilty pleasure!!

I love these sorts of things, especially now having a cat.

Absolutely love this, am going to read the lot! Might show it to Cosmo (the cat) too :D

On a serious note, I like this, a lot. And, it may even arouse real questions in someone. Can`t wait to read it all.
