Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome! Today we are going to look at lolcats in five of the hundreds of members of the Indo-European family of languages. Included are three "Romance" languages (Spanish, French, and Italian), one Slavic language (Russian), and one West Germanic language (German). Given that the Romanic languages descend from Vulgar Latin, the language of ancient Rome, let's acknowledge the mother tongue first.

The PWB diaries are a place to relax, share pictures and stories about our animal friends, LOL, and build community. If you like that, come on in and join us; if you don't like it, now's the time to click over to another diary. No crapping in the playground, please.

Bless their hearts, every Wednesday (Miaucoles), Zambombazo publishes "un lolcat en español, o mejor dicho, en una versión española de lolspeak..." That's where I found some of these gems.

Porfis = variation of "por favor" used whenever you want somebody to do you a favor no matter what...Pretty please with sugar on top. Photobucket

Italian


World's richest cat
Under Italian law, animals cannot inherit directly, but they can be beneficiaries if a suitable trustee is found. An elderly widow entrusted her cat Tommaso and his fortune (€10 million) to a friend and fellow cat-lover named Stefania, who looked after the widow during her last months.

Akshully, this photo of Tommaso makes a good illustration to accompany Dante's line from the Divine Comedy: "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'entrate (All hope abandon, ye who enter in)."

"You were warned not to troll here!!!" "Ouch... leeve me alone... there's a Gonstituttion... there's a Demogracy..." "Mm.. iz better i get back on Facebook."

Russian


Thanks to Яolcats for all but the last picture. It's interesting to see how much grim humor is packed into Russian lolcats, focused as they are on the impact of Teh Party on everyday life.
That we both may be a burden on the state, this thought above all others keeps me from sleep this night. Photobucket
-I swear I spoke no ill of The Party!

Commissar Markov has long been a loyal party member, but I fear his growing influence in state policy. Perhaps it is time to cash in a favor from my friends at the Kremlin.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
