A Trainwreck As Told By LOLcats

GUYZ I love a good trainwreck. I love it. It makes my day pass by so fast. So, imagine my pure joy when this pops up in twitter. Blogger BigAl of Books And Pals reviews The Greek Seaman by Jacqueline Howett. The review is pretty tame, nothing too horrible. Howett goes nuts in the comments though and has a meltdown. I’ve highlighted in chronological order my favorite remarks as told by LOLcats:






and the grand finale!



And this is what happens when I get bored. Think of it as the joy of LOLcats.

  1. LOLOLOL. If it was acceptable to pee my pants to show you how hard I’m laughing…I would. But that’s gross and I’m too lazy to do laundry today.

  7. I’m going to echo Jamie and say that while I’d like to tell you I almost just wet myself, that’s really pretty gross….however, I am laughing really really hard at these. Totally made my day.

  8. HAHA!

    Like others, I was just made aware of the craziness that exploded all over BigAl’s blog. When reading the author’s comments, I was both inappropriately amused and disgusted. The worst part of it is that her “strong” reaction, besides being childish & asinine, was completely unfounded. Al’s review was actually quite positive for the most part…and the negative bits of his review were presented without any ill will and were supported by evidence.

    And yes, can someone please explain to me what “just look at your ball” means? I am confuzzled.

  13. Oh my, that is one crazy author! Good thing I haven’t read any self-published books. I’m afraid to get this kind of reaction.

  14. If that review taught me anything, it was to NEVER softball a negative review. Totally not worth it. Not that I really needed to learn that lesson, of course…

  15. When you were posting these to twitter I thought they were actually LOLcats. But now I see what you did there.

    Sad that I couldn’t tell the difference.

  16. Hahahaha, oh God, what did we do before lolcats came along to gladden our lives?
