Get the lolcat mug.
The phenomenon of pasting captions in large text onto pictures of cats. The captions are a specific blend of:

1) txt msg text (shortcuts like "ur" for "your")
2) bad English-Asian translations (like the classic "all your base are belong to us")
3) common typing mistakes (like "!!!!1" and "ZOMG" and "teh")
4) misspellings (like "cheeze")
5) spam shortcuts (like substituting "5" for "S" and "3" for "e")
May I have some food, please?
