So most people know LOLCats now right?  If not, drop over to ICanHasCheezburger.com for a minute & check it out.  Leave your brain at the door.

So then some genius came along and designed a LOLCode specification, that is, a programming language that uses LOLCats language as its syntax.  That specification is now in its 4th revision (yes, you read that right, people have that much free time on their hands).

But wait, there’s more.  The specification has now been implemented in a number of languages & platforms including .NET.

So you can now write your next ground-breaking social networking startup site in LOLCode.NET.  Yes, you can write software in LOLCode & debug it using Visual Studio.  The compiler was written by Arachnid, very smart guy by the way.  I highly recommend reading his series on Damn Cool Algorithms if you’re interested in such things.  The compiler has been rather well received by the .NET community, so much so that Nick Hodge featured it in a presentation he gave at TechEd07. Nice.

Still, I’m almost certain that this is one of the signs of the apocalypse.
