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!

  4. Oh, what a fun and cute idea! I’ve been a long time lurker here at OT, but I think now’s a great time to step of the shadows. Anyways, enough rambling, here’s my entry.

    Yahoo file manager reaches its transfer capacity quickly, so if these (or my previous submittals) don’t work for you, wait about 15 minutes and they should work. I may switch them over to another provider if it becomes a problem. Enjoy!

  11. AH!
    I’M LOVING THESE!
    I haven’t looked through them all but so far my definite faves are #s 20 & 30.
    Thanks for making my night!
    I HOPE OUR SHOW IS BACK SOON :(

  12. I posted yesterday and it still isn’t up? Can someone help me? I think maybe I wrote the HTML incorrectly.

  13. Here’s the two I want to submit:

  16. Awesome idea. We need some good Office macros. Didn’t get to look at all the entries so I hope I didn’t do anything too similar:

  17. Hey, I’d like to post my LOLCATZ but I fear that I will post them wrong. I’m not really sure how to post them like everyone else is. How do you post them without all the address junk showing? All I know is copying and pasting the link. Can someone help me out with this???

    Thanks…

  18. I posted some earlier but it went missing, so I thought I’d just post a link to the flickr album where I put them all.

    This was an awesome idea.
