The OfficeTally Lolcat Contest

The Office

This is about the silliest thing we could turn our attention to right now. And it’s purr-fect.

Presenting the OfficeTally Lolcat Contest: match an Office quote to a silly cat picture, and you could win an Office treat!

What’s a lolcat?

For the purposes of this contest, a lolcat is a photo of a cat matched to a quote from The Office. The quote is “lollified,” meaning it’s converted to bad spelling and grammar — on purpose.

Besides Sudoku Kitty above, here are a few other sample lolcats, all courtesy of OTCR moderator Jim Mosby.

How to submit an entry

  1. Pick a quote from any episode of The Office. Our friends at OfficeQuotes.net have the entire collection.
  2. “Lollify” the quote — here’s a dictionary and how-to guide to help you.
  3. Create your lolcat. The easiest way is to use the Lolcat Builder, thanks to the fine folks over at icanhascheezburger.com. Just pick a photo, add your quote, click Preview, and then right-click the image to save it to your computer.
  4. Upload the photo to a photo hosting service, such as photobucket or flickr.
  5. Add a comment to this post with a link to your lolcat.
  6. Include a valid email address.

How to win

  1. A panel of lolcat judges (Jim Mosby, Matt, Tori) will pick 20 finalists.
  2. The finalists will then be entered in a fan poll.
  3. The top five vote-getters will each receive a Target Office goodie from OT’s available stash!
