Surprised not to see these after 27 pages (unless I missed them)

"Can I haz..." or "I haz..."

"So many feels."

I'm good with the first one because of the cat connection, though I prefer "I can haz."  :D

What on earth is "So many feels" supposed to express, though? I haven't run into that one before. Is it something along the lines of "So many emotions"?

Feels = feelings or emotions, usually sad or bittersweet. It's usually used in the context of "That episode of Game of Thrones gave me so many feels."

Ugh. That's just awful.

Along the lines of 'Imma', there's something I've noticed lately, mostly from late teenage women. 'Can I' becomes 'C'I', so it sounds like 'Ky have the remote...' For some reason this makes my teeth itch every time!

Yea, that really isn't the image that phrase invokes, though...

I suspect I get the same image.   :P

"Haz" as in "I can haz" is reserved solely for the use of felines in Internet memes.  If you don't have four legs, no thumbs, and weren't born with sharp pointy bits, you cannot have "haz."  While we are on the subject, please do not use LOLcat language for anything except short captions on photos.  Thank you.

I tend to use it ironically, but otherwise I agree.

Actualy, I prefer captions on cat photo's top be in normal language as well. I don't know about other cats, but mine does not talk that way :)

I think LOLspeak is cute in moderation. I do admit that it starts to bother me when I have to have a decoder ring from a cereal box just to read some of the photo captions.

I donít see "ermahgerd" often enough for it to really bother me, but I just got a captcha which required typing in "ermahgerd captcher" as the solution.

I think that was my tipping point.

That kind of caption speak always reminds me of an old 'Far Side' cartoon. 

The family dog has posted a sign on the washing machine with the words 'KAT FUD' and an arrow.

Oh, yes, so much. I don't know why, but the ermahgerd thing creeps me out. Where did it even come from?
