As we passed by Dairy Queen today, The Owl pointed out something that has become quite an issue to me, and naturally, I had to stop to snap evidence.
Let me quickly explain why I hate the Internet: because “chz” has become an acceptable form of “cheese” thanks to that stupid meme known as the LOLCats (which, might I add, I had to search on Wikipedia to find out why it’s funny, and P.S. I still don’t find it funny).
FACT #1: I tried to use cheezburger on Words With Friends. It agrees with me; it’s not a word.
FACT #2: Your handy kiosk lettering kit is loaded with the letters E and S (see Pick-the-right-letters-on-Wheel-of-Fortune, or Letter Frequency article from Wikipedia for explanation). Since I only see one of each of these letters in this sentence, and the message repeats itself on the other side, I have no doubt you could have tossed up exactly six additional E’s and two more S’s.
Here’s the thing: I don’t find humor in incorrect grammar. I hate when people text me and don’t use full sentences. I roll my eyes when I see “ur” instead of “your.” I just don’t see why it’s cute to say “I can haz cheezburger” just because somebody slapped it on a photo of a kitten—using a crappy font, might I add.
So please, people, can you at least spell out cheese? You made me pass up on a Dilly Bar out of pure disgust.
