Oreo, the GalleyCat, exploited?

I’m Oreo’s writer. She is not my cat. The possession doesn’t flow that direction, unfortunately.

I scoop her poop. I pick her eye boogers. I put ice in her water. I stop working when she tells me to. When she demands it, I make room for her on my chair.

Media Bistro’s blog GalleyCat has accused me of exploiting Oreo for marketing purposes. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If anything, Oreo is exploiting me to spread Her Preciousness across the web.

GalleyCat, the website, reworked, GalleyCat, the photo:


Oreo is pleased with the photo appearing on another website, but she is offended by the LOLcat spelling. If she – being the supreme sentient being she is – chose to bless us with her words, spoken or written, they would be of perfect grammar and biting wit.

She will most certainly punish me for the way this has unfolded.

Me exploit her? I wish!

That’s freakin’ ridiculous! In “cat-ese” Oreo’s name is KTHXBAI??? Who knew?

Kelsey says:

Kyle, you are so unhip. KTHXBAI is text/internet lingo for: Okay, Thanks, bye.

Actually I had to google it. Go acquaint yourself with the art of LOLcats: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolcat

Kent says:

KTHXBAI?! I thought internet lingo was supposed to save time, not increase Google’s search volume.

wait a minute…. maybe ridiculous internet lingo was seeded into society by Google in order to secure their Global empire of domination! I smell a conspiracy.

Kelsey says:

Kent, I think you are onto something.
