Friday Funny: Cats + Buildings = Fun

Some architecture students at UC Berkeley were incredibly busy over Spring Break. Polishing their portfolios or getting ahead on course reading, you ask? Nope. Developing a trove of Architectural LOLCATS.

For those unfamiliar, a lolcat is "an image combining a photograph of a cat with text intended to contribute humour. The text is often idiosyncratic and grammatically incorrect, and its use in this way is known as 'lolspeak' or 'kitty pidgin'."

Check out the extensive gallery on the Berkeley blog on Archinect for architecturally appropriate lolcats such as "The Birds Nest by Purrzog and deMeowron," "Mario Botta's SF MeOwMA," and "Purrruit Igoe."
