A recent Twitter from John Biehler about how “FAIL” seems to be one of the most popular words at SXSW reminded me of the following.
When poking around the new Metroblogging Vancouver website, powered by the lovely and capable WordPress MU, I came across a “coming soon” page. Instead of a “whoops! page not found” note, it had an image of a dog with the caption, “FAIL”. Turns out it came from FailDogs, are these pups the new lolcatz?
Sure, they don’t have snappy captions like the lolcatz (I mean geez it’s such an empire they even re-did the bible in lolcatz-speak), but FailDogs say it all with just one word. It’s puppies and silliness, and a great navel-gazer of a website that helps pass the time or put a smile on an otherwise frowny face. So now who’s coming up with the “FTW” site?
