Recently I was having some argument in an online community and one person's reply to me included a picture of a snarky cat. I won't show the actual cat used, but it was along these lines:
I was a little shocked. Maybe I don't spend enough time arguing online, but this was the first time someone replied to me with a snarky cat photo. I mean, I've seen them before in other contexts and always thought they were a little lame, but this was the first time someone used one on me.
What do you say to a snarky cat photo? I felt like I was communicating with a grade schooler.
I wasn't sure what to make of it. But I'm pretty sure when the argument has degenerated to the point of namecalling via cat photos, it's time to back out gracefully.
Or...... fight with MORE CAT PHOTOS!!!
(Seriously, there's a whole website of these things!)
