I used to love going to LOLcats and ICanHazCheezburger. The photos of animals doing funny stuff with funny captions was a great way to lift my mood. I still go to them sometimes, but a lot of the images just aren’t funny anymore.
Why aren’t they funny? One of the main reasons is because so many of them have been Photoshopped. It used to be that the vast majority of the images were just shots that people were lucky enough (or patient enough) to catch. Now there are a lot more that have been manipulated in image programs. They’re done badly too. It’s not really funny when they’re fake, and not very creative.
Add to that the fact that people are getting really lame with their captions and a lot of the amusement goes out of looking at the images. I wish people would just go back to the candid cat shots and the funny captions. It’s annoying when you go through five or six pages at the site and only see two or three funny images.
