What do you get when you combine cats, bad grammar, cheesy pictures, and more cats? If you answered “hell,” you’d be correct as far as I’m concerned. Unfortunately, the real answer is that you’d get this:
I’m all for new translations of the Bible that help people engage God’s Word in new ways….but this? Please make it stop. My eyes are starting to bleed.
If you’d like more information on the project, you can check out the LOLcat wiki. But I don’t recommend it. I clicked on the link and my head exploded. Now I can’t find my teeth.
Fortunately, we have some academic support to help us navigate these shoal waters. As James McGrath points out, both Daniel Kirk and Matthew Crowe offer some perspective on this new “translation.” Sadly, Matthew appears to like it, suggesting that he has actually been possessed by an alien parasite that has taken over his higher critical functions. We should pray for him.
Update: We should probably pray for Daniel Kirk as well. Apparently he actually read this. So, I’m assuming that he is currently experiencing complete neural failure. I hope he wasn’t driving at the time.
