Does anyone remember Яolcats? :D
http://rolcats.com/
They were bad translations of Russian-captioned lols, but there were only ever about 15 of them. I've always wanted moars, but they were first made in 2009 and then abandoned.. so!

Let's make some!! :D

Step 1: Make rolcats
Step 2: Get lots of tumblr followers
Step 3: ???
Step 4: World domination!!

It'd be easy for everyone, too. Cheezburger has a lol-builder, http://builder.cheezburger.com/Builder
so all that's necessary is..

- Go to Google translate
- type something ridiculous
- Translate to Russian
- copy and paste russian into the frame
- write nonsense English translation on the subjects of
(a) Soviet-era oppression
(b) Existentialism
(c) Communism/Socialism
(d) Russian history
(e) Matt Damon
(f) etc.
- post image here, then tumblr account holders (anyone who wants the password) can add it to tumblr.

We probably need a new name, though. Яolcats probably isn't trademarked or anything, but because there wouldn't be any affiliation..

Some name ideas:
- NewRussianLolCats
- NewRolCats
- SovietLolCats
- ...

Thoughts?? :D

For instance!

Here's this pic (just captioned):
http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2vl5sig&s=8#.U1MQoLlOU5s
Каменные стены — не тюрьма,
А железная решетка — не клетка;
Для невинного и спокойного разума
Это жилище отшельника.

With English caption:
The freedom of my body — is not an illusion
It has power — it can escape
But I give my mind to the state Panopticon

or maybe..
This body in space — is not fixed
The door is open — it can escape;
It is my mind that I give to the state Panopticon

- UGTrolCats
- UtopiaRolCats
- RedCats
- CommieCats
- ProletariatCatalution
- KurganCats
...
Naming will continue until tomorrow, then I'm making the tumblr!!!

В буржуазном обществе капитал обладает самостоятельностью и индивидуальностью, а живой человек, зависит и не имеет индивидуальность.


In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality.

Liar! You can make a lol :D

Maybe by scanning recent lolcats and looking for something that can be redone with their 'recaption' button?

You could also just go for depressing or confusing ;D

Печально подносить лекарство,

I dare make only one request:
When my body has ceased, cast it over the rails!

..apparently cheezburger scripts fail a lot with problems like that, so captioning suggestions on that pic will be open until its recaption button is back :p

regular caption still works though! so another lol for tonight!:

When I go to the first tinypic link I'm getting a "Careers at NSA - Learn More" advertisement. O.o

Downsides of working at the NSA:
- Morally objectionable
- Can't talk about work
- Below average compensation

Upsides:
- Once and for all figure out which multi belong to which posters on UP.

Tough decisions...

Natalya opened the case to find that she had arrived
alas, not in the decadent West
but back within the Serbian sex trade

Natalya soon discovered that her exit fee was wasted
Again she was out of pocket on the Serbian circuit, facing another round of seasoning.

Exit Fee — The money a pimp will demand from a victim who is thinking about trying to leave. It will be an exorbitant sum, to discourage her from leaving. Most pimps never let their victims leave freely.

Out of Pocket — The phrase describing when a victim is not under control of a pimp but working on a pimp-controlled track, leaving her vulnerable to threats, harassment, and violence in order to make her “choose” a pimp.

Circuit — A series of cities among which prostituted people are moved.

Seasoning — A combination of psychological manipulation, intimidation, gang rape, sodomy, beatings, deprivation of food or sleep, isolation from friends or family and other sources of support, and threatening or holding hostage of a victim’s children. Seasoning is designed to break down a victim’s resistance and ensure compliance.

Some thoughts on a caption for that one:
- Prepare a tub of lye, comrade. 10 Kilos should suffice.
- Move along, comrade, lest you desire his fate.
- Sympathy from you, means more work for me.
- State affairs in progress. Move along.
