I found this on the consistently entertaining blog deletia. It was taken from Rolcats, a site featuring fake English translations of an Eastern Bloc version of Lolcats. Rolcats makes Lolcats look very, very amateur, which granted is not difficult. Below is the translation of the caption above, and deletia’s response:
It’s pretty hard for me to express how much I love this. The men I’ve sent to death weigh heavily on my mind; but this burden is but a fist of straw compared to the strain of the republic. I can has post-Soviet irony in meme format?
It’s pretty hard for me to express how much I love deletia. The writer identifies herself only as Prolix, and she’s from Edmonton, which probably explains her command of irony.
Update: deletia now seems to have moved to so i win.
Loyal Loot, four designers in Edmonton, Alberta who produce simple but interesting, stylish work, have one of the most enviable company names in Canadian design. Their Log Bowls are really appealing, and we also love their Coat Hang. It requires no hardware, hugging the wall and floor via friction, and its sturdy hooks mimic the curled shaving of an axe cutting kindling from a log. It has everything: user-friendliness, simplicity, visual appeal and conceptual smartness. Loyal Loot is Doha Chebib, Carmen Douville, Dara Humniski, and Anna Thomas.
