I was trying to tell some friends last night about this cartoon, and my explanation began with, “you know those i’m-in-your-whatever-cat-picutres.” which, it turned out, they did not, and the more I tried to explain it, the more I sounded like a loon, so I eventually resorted to trying to find some examples for them.
I started by googling “i’m in yr, cat pictures.” And — wow! — did you know that there are a whole slew of posts and articles dedicated to explaining this “joke?” Anyway, the explanations were so earnest and serious that I found them pretty much hilarious, especially this one:
I’M IN UR X Ying your Z. This construct, based on i’m in ur base, killin ur d00ds has morphed into a catch-all structure for annotating cat pictures.
Just thought I’d share.
