Lolcat Bible Translation Project

Categories and tags:

There are many novelty Bible translation projects – the Geordie Bible – the Cockney Bible, the Brick Testament (Lego based) – but a new one on me was the Lolcat Bible…

The peculiar text-msg influenced speech, and an emergent set of stock phrases (based on specific well-known lolcat images from – the main lolcat site), make lolcats seem rather intriguing anyway – but how to do the Bible? First have a Theistic notion (Ceiling Cat) – and go for it:

Boreded Ceiling Cat makinkgz Urf n stuffs
1 Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem.
2 Da Urfs no had shapez An haded dark face, An Ceiling Cat rode invisible bike over teh waterz.
3 At start, no has lyte. An Ceiling Cat sayz, i can haz lite? An lite wuz.4 An Ceiling Cat sawed teh lite, to seez stuffs, An splitted teh lite from dark but taht wuz ok cuz kittehs can see in teh dark An not tripz over nethin.5 An Ceiling Cat sayed light Day An dark no Day. It were FURST!!!1

See the whole project at: – they have done loads of work on this…

But: do the novelty translations reveal new meanings? Anything beyond the fun here?


David W... says:

NIV Bible:
Is there anything of which one can say,
“Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago;
it was here before our time.

King James:
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

Lolcat bible:
Kitteh can not sez “OMFGZ sumthing new!” is jus REPOST!
