Last week after the Vatican announced their own YouTube channel I joked on Twitter “The next part of the Vatican’s social communication plan will be introducing LOLSaints.” Anybody who has seen icanhascheezburger.com are aware of the LOLCats phenomenon.
After I posted this on Twitter I got a message from fellow Catholic Twitterer and blogger Jeff Geerling that he had bought the site lolsaints.com and was setting it up. Today on the feast of St. Blaise LOLSaints.com is going live. I am quite amazed at the work professional web developer Jeff Geerling has done in making this a reality including the content he has created. So far I have submitted to LOLSaint graphics for this site and will do more in the future. What is so cool about this site is that others can register and submit their own LOLSaint graphics. Jeff Geerling has made this more than just a humor site by including more information to go with the graphics to give you a laugh and some catechetics at the same times. Or is that LOLCatechetics?
