A lolcat
"is an image combining a photograph, most frequently a cat, with a humorous
and idiosyncratic caption in (often) broken English—a dialect which is known
as "lolspeak", or "kitteh" and parodies the poor grammar typically attributed
to Internet slang. The name "lolcat" is a compound word of the phrase "LOL" and "cat". A synonym for "lolcat" is cat macro, since the images are a type of image macro.Lolcats are designed for photo sharing imageboards
and other internet forums..."

Beautiful vowels

"Eunoia is the shortest word in English containing all five vowels - and it means "beautiful thinking". It is also the title of Canadian poet Christian Bok's
book of fiction in which each chapter uses only one vowel.
Mr Bok believes his book proves that each vowel has its own personality,
and demonstrates the flexibility of the English language."
