Lolcat Bible reminds us that God has a sense of humor...

Fundamentalists and literalists everywhere would do well to avoid "LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuff." Somehow, a retelling of the Bible in lolcat would probably offend them, especially when they learn that the Jesus character ...
Fundamentalists and literalists everywhere would do well to avoid "LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuff." Somehow, a retelling of the Bible in lolcat would probably offend them, especially when they learn that the Jesus character is "Happy Cat."

This retelling is not exactly faithful to the original works, but there is a seed of the Bible, e.g. Exodus 6: "28Itz so nise, da Bible say it twise: Ceiling Cat sez to Moses, 29'Tawk wif Pharo teh stuf Iz tellin yu.' 30Moses sez, 'I no can! I just m-m-m-meow like dis. Pharo no lissen to meh. He just covur eers and sing "Lalalala! Iz no heer yu!" (In the King James Version, Exodus 6:28-30 is: "28And it came to pass on the day when the LORD spake unto Moses in the land of Egypt, 29That the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, I am the LORD: speak thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee. 30And Moses said before the LORD, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?" Since I am not terribly familiar with the language of KJV, I'll assume that "of uncircumcised lips" translate to "a stutterer," since Moses has been reported to have been so afflicted.)

Those more interested in the New Testament will find parables told by "Happy Cat," as well as other biblical events. "The Parable ov teh Niec Samaritan Dood" begins, "Happy Cat sez, 'Wuns upon a tiem, a dood go from Jerusalem to Jericho. But OH NOES! Him get beeted up an robbed an stuf, an him almost ded. Srsly!" Of course, Happy Cat's words are printed in red.

It might seem that a book like LOLcat Bible would appeal primarily to non-believers, but that assumption is erroneous. Those who have some familiarity with the Bible (and I am not saying non-believers don't) will get more enjoyment out of translations of stories with which they are already familiar. The humor is in the comparison.

Pictures of cats and kittens illustrate LOLcat Bible, and in the lolcat tradition, they all bear captions. A white cat climbing a wall is accompanied by the words, "Dat nite, Pharo sez to Moses an Aaron, 'Awl Israel GTFO uv Egypt nao. Srsly.'" Like most versions of the Bible, Lolcat Bible contains an awful lot of things that are meant to be taken seriously.

LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs is a lot of fun, and-surprisingly-it may inspire many to dust off their Bibles, just to see the original texts BCLC (before the creation of LOLcat). It is unquestionably irreverent, especially the OMGs and WTFs, and not many churches will be tossing their traditional versions in favor of LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs.

Bottom Line: "Would I buy LOLcat Bible: In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez an da Erfs n stuffs?" Yes. Having four cats, I obviously enjoy looking at cats (especially when they are still), and I find the text to be humorous, inoffensive (I know many will not agree), and a reminder of things I'd read so many years ago.

Disappointed

I've long loved the lol cats. I love the "i can has cheeseburger?" book and I love it when I get an email with the great lol cat pictures. I thought this was too much kitteh-speak and not enough pictures. Also, a little on the tasteless side. Wish I could say I like...
