The internet is divided into 2. Those who actually like and understand Internet phenomena such as ceiling cat and basement cat and those who really couldn’t give a damn because they see it as a
totally idiotic, transient, meaningless reflection of the idle, fat, insouciant and feckless youth of the developed world. I wrote that when I was angry about something else. It is a bit harsh. What about…see it as youthful humor that has taken on a cult status and which is unlikely to be appreciated by silver surfers or even the middle aged.
One group would say that the other group are the white youth of Britain and America who don’t know how to graft. They’ve exhausted all their energy on writing comments to ceiling cat and basement cat cr*p. A large percentage of what I would term “the old school” believe that the modern youth have lost the work ethic. That is certainly true in the UK due to dumbed down education and overly generous welfare benefits. That is no longer a right wing viewpoint.
You have to be involved with the cheeseburger, lolcat set to understand ceiling cat and basement cat. Even when you look it up on the Internet all the information that you find is written by 18 year kids who spend all their time looking at funny cat videos and dreaming up fancy cheeseburger captions to funny cat “pix”. Boring. I was bored with it years ago. Ceiling cat and basement cat are just the creation of idle minds looking for cheap thrills. Why don’t you guys do an honest days work instead and try and do something that improves society?
This is ceiling cat:
That’s it. Around that single image people have developed the battle of good versus evil, God versus the Devil and light versus darkness. The ceiling cat is the heavenly one on high spying on us or looking down on us while basement cat is in…yes you guessed it, the basement, in the darkness, down there. He is ceiling cat’s adversary.
Here is basement cat and his army of zombies:
There is little more of note to say about these inventions of people who are addicted to the more banal side of the Internet. Millions of people really like ceiling cat and basement cat. I can understand the funky side of it. It’s a bit like making funny sounds. It’s larking around. It is a version of playing practical jokes.
What is extraordinary is that millions of teenagers and youth have, for some bizarre reason used the domestic cat as a centerpiece to their crazy language and internet genre. They could have chosen any animal. Leave the cat alone, please. I think this genre devalues the cat. I think it hurts the cat and encourages idiots with rifles to shoot the cat. And God knows there are enough bloody assault rifles in the living rooms of America .
So what exactly is ceiling cat and basement cat? They are just the inventions of the youth of today having fun making up cool funky iconic images accompanied by silly but “cool” words. It is a fad, a phase and one day it will be in the history books like Bakelite telephones.
You can see that I am not in the group of people who appreciate this Internet phenomenon. These are personal views. I respect the views of others.
