Clare O’Farrell’s blog on books, TV, films, Michel Foucault, universities etc. etc.

Lolspeak is the ‘pigeon’ language that is used to caption cats on the I can has cheezburger site. Lolcats, as I have mentioned earlier in this blog, have become an internet meme.

I suppose it’s inevitable that people have started making Foucault lolcats – given the popularity of both the cats and Foucault. I feel somewhat ambivalent about these as Foucault tended to be somewhat more articulate than the average cat.

One thought on “Foucault and lolspeak

  1. ancient regime says:

    Hello Clare,
    I found your blog only recently, and like it very much!

    So, lolcat speach and Foucault….”ur panopticon” is brilliant, I think, but the rest is…a little so la la. A bit strange when Foucault starts to speak lolcat, whitout any lolcat in sight.
