What the hell is going on here?

Lately, I've been getting a lot of emails at work featuring pictures of animals who are, allegedly, saying cutesy things in some strange, baby talk language.

The photo I've posted here is fairly typical of the kinds of things I've been receiving.

Whenever I've gotten one of these things, I've thought, "Well, there's a person who doesn't know a thing about The Hawg. Those who know me well understand that few things annoy me more than proof that the English language is being dragged through the dirt."

Yesterday, however, my own wife sent me one of these photos. There's someone who understands me very well (the poor woman!), so what gives? I can only conclude that these photos were born of some kind of strange obsession with both animals and schmaltzy cuteness.

So I've joined the craze. I've created some of my own cute animal photos. I hope you all enjoy them.

I've been seeing those everywhere lately. i don't know if it's just a fad or what, but I wish it would just go away! said...

I know who the culprit is behind all of this cutsy caption picture craze.

You could have a new career as a lolcat writer.

Actually, those things usually annoy the crap out of me.

spicybugs -- Yeah. Annoying stuff, huh?

Matt -- I'm hoping it is a fad as those go away after a time.

Paul -- Bingo.

Crotchety -- I'd never cut it as one of those "lolcat" types. The stuff I come up with is just too mean, I think.
