Big thanks to BoingBoing for pointing out this site of “Eastern Bloc Lolcats,” translated for the benefit of us English-speaking comrades.

Most of the captions have to do with bureaucracy, the black market, the Soviet era, etc., like this one, translated as: “Drat, thwarted so close to freedom’s sweet caress. I dreamed for but a taste of the decadent west, and now my eulogy is sung by guard dogs and alarm bells.”


Or this one: “These consumables are contraband, comrade — your passage to the gulag is paid for in L’eggs Body Beautiful Smoothers Shaping Hosiery!”
