Everybody loves LOLcats---you know, those witty combinations of humorous pictures and broken cat-English captions that have been taking the internet by storm ever since their invention in the mid-to-late Zero-ies---but as with any art form, the longer they exist, the more controversial they need to be to continue to attract attention.

Forget 'morale-boosters,' we'd rather have the money.
These stories remind us what unlimited wealth and power can do to a human being.
Trends among women trigger a level of contempt that's way beyond what is deserved.
Can we rest?
