They make funny faces, are total hacks at spelling and grammar and people like to look at 'em. If LOLwhatever had a recipe, surely, that would be it.
My exhaustive search of the internets (that's kinda my job here at ParentMap Labs™) was nearly fruitless. A little action over on Flickr. A little on a blog over this-a-way. But we're talking just a few hundred in all. What the French toast? This cannot be!
I dare say it's easy to fix! Our friends at Big Huge Labs have an easy to use LOLmaker! Just upload your photo, add your misspelled clever capshonz and SEND 'EM TO US! I declare a LOLbaby week here on the blog. Maybe I can even talk the lovely Kristen Dobson into printing a few in the magazine, which believe it or not, still has a bigger readership than the blog. I know! I know! I don't get it either.
So as not to crash our mail server and allow us to accept huuuuuge files, I set up a gmail address for your e-mailing pleasure. It's parentmap at gmail dot com. Use it. Abuse it. Show us yer babehs.
