Lolcats and Demotivationals

Demotivationals  are closely related to lolcats, and the genres frequently mix.  Demotivationals are based on  motivational posters, except the purpose of the phrase or caption is rarely to motivate.  Popular demotivational websites include VeryDemotivational.com and Icanhasmotivation.com.

The lolcat world has utilized the demotivational framing and caption style; so much so that some lolcat caption forms are based on the “(word): (phrase)” language form common to motivationals and demotivationals.
