LOL–what?

PZ seems to think that the whole “LOL” thing has gone too far. He may be right. In fact, I’ve even commented on it before.

Even though I have a bit of trouble wrapping my mind around the whole “LOLCats” phenomenon and its various bizarre spinoffs, I do have to admit that I’ve found one LOL spinoff that’s pretty darned amusing.

Are you ready for LOLQuacks?

Even the originator of the woo that it homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann himself, is not immune to the LOL treatment:
