Fairly often I'm gobsmacked by the complexities of things I knew just a bit about. Latest case in point: the perhaps-fatuous domain of lolcat, referenced in today's Language Log. I mean, I did know about

but I didn't grasp its deeper significance. See more on the harbl meme... and a couple of hours later, LOL-Kitteh as a Second Language (LKSL-101) in Five Easy Steps, via The Lexicographer's Rules. Whatever NEXT?

Did you notice that Language Log cites Sandy Blakeslee?
