TR overtaken by LOLcatz

First, we started blogging, which only served as a gateway to unboxing. Podcasts soon followed, as did our inevitable foray into social networking. Slowly but surely, we’ve managed to keep TR up to speed with all the latest internet trends. It’s no wonder, then, that we’ve been overtaken by LOLcatz.

    C’mon!! If you don’t want the wrath of my cats upon you, change the logo back to where it was this morning!

      Yeah, I think the lolcatz TR logo should stay the permanent logo. Perhaps that could a vote in the next poll?

      Edit: Meadows already said that. I fail, but agree.

    Geoff, I love it. This is what makes TR so great, you guys are able to have fun and keep things happening.

    In a more series note, I’d like to see more of these kitties in future articles…

      I second! My 3 cats are your buddies as they know you understand them.

    An article about the joke? Eh, it would have been better if you changed the entire front page theme and acted like nothing was wrong.

      • eitje

      benchmarks is serious business.

    • ludi
    • 11 years ago

    I think you should keep the new logo. Forever.

      • FroBozz_Inc
      • 11 years ago

      I agree! It rules.

      • flip-mode
      • 11 years ago

      Agreement.

      • eitje
      • 11 years ago

      ludi is on point.

      • Meadows
      • 11 years ago

      I totally agree.

      Edit: Make a site poll about it.

      • El_MUERkO

      new logo ftw!

      • SomeOtherGeek
      • 11 years ago

      I concur!! Catz are forever!

      • UberGerbil
      • 11 years ago

      How about making it a semi-hidden joke — put it in the mouseover tooltip for the logo, or something.

      • eitje
      • 11 years ago

      make it customizable.

      color, width, and… TR image.

    Well, it makes up for not “wearin’ the green” on St. Patrick’s Day.

    I was actually waiting for someone on the forums to go “OMGWTFBBQ LOL-CATS?!!?!”

    But I guess this suffices, thank you for calming my worries about a total feline domination of the WWW 😀

    Kittehs must from now on be included in every picture for…. um…. size comparisons.

    Screw CD and DVD cases, in with the kittehs.

      • khands

    I think the new TR logo is a particularly nice touch.

      • Mourmain
      • 11 years ago

      Ooh, I had to shift-Refresh to see that one… thanks for pointing it out!

    • UberGerbil
    • 11 years ago

    I’m pretty sure — based on the position of the rear leg and the facial expression — that the cat in the “dis one is mine” pic was caught right in the middle of licking its butt.

      • MadManOriginal
      • 11 years ago

      You’re an expert on buttlicking eh? eh??!

        • UberGerbil
        • 11 years ago

        We had cats when I was a kid, so I’ve seen that expression before.
        I suspect it’s on the face of a few commenters here from time to time also

    • UberGerbil
    • 11 years ago

    So, are you going to introduce the stars of the show? What are their names, and which humans are their slaves? (The blue w/ the chest blaze — the one in “sepia” and “on point” — is a nice looking cat)

      • Dissonance
      • 11 years ago

      The first bunch are of Barney, my girlfriend’s cat. And my step-dog.

      • Tamale
      • 11 years ago

      The second two are Pixel and Phoebe, the gray and calico respectively, and they’re both residents (nay, Queens) of the Tamale residence 🙂

      if ever you’ve wondered why a case might have a stray speck of dust or hair in one of my photos, now you know. Pixel especially can’t leave me alone while I’m working.

        • FroBozz_Inc
        • 11 years ago

        The grey one looks kinda like a Russian Blue.
        I have one myself, she’s awesome.

        I love the “updated” TR Logo too, LOL

        • SomeOtherGeek
        • 11 years ago

        Oh man!! The stories I could tell!

        Working on putting a PC together and cat just jumps on the table and walks across the motherboard, purring! Ahhhh! Then they jump away and the motherboard falls to the floor… Face screws up and a thousand curses screaming in your head. Carefully pick up the board and find out it is ok… Stare at the cat with an evil eye and the cat looks back and says, “What is your f***ing problem?” and licks its paws. All emotions drains away and you continuing working on the PC like nothing happened.

        So many other stories to tell, but you get what I’m saying… They are the ones that make life more bearable!

      i was also wondering if they were TR cats 🙂

    • glynor

    Great post! Hysterical.

    I’m not sure but I believe that the proper irreverant forum response is now for us to:

    1. Demand that you post a photo of yourself exposing some very personal body-part of your own or, perhaps, an unwitting significant other.
    2. When you refuse (you will refuse, right?) then you are to be told to GTFO.
    3. If you then back down and comply, you will be called a liar and new photos with time/datestamps drawn by hand on said bodyparts will be required (mixed with lots of others calling for “MOAR NAO!”).
    4. ????????
    5. PROFIT!

    • MadManOriginal

    Holy crap. ALL TR pictures are LOLcats.? Or at least a lot on the front page. Confliker anyone?

    • Obsidian
    • 11 years ago

    I found the “I smell another G92” one to be particularly hilarious. Nice job Geoff.

      • mbutrovich
      • 11 years ago

      Definitely the best one.

      • ImSpartacus
      • 11 years ago

      Yeah, I really liked that. The others were ok, but that was about the only techie “joke.”

      • UberGerbil
      • 11 years ago

      I don’t know, I think I’m going to be linking to the “ur benchmarks is boring me” image in the future (not for TR’s reviews, of course).

      That was awesome. I didn’t think that anyone who mattered read the front page posts.
