In case you didn’t catch that, have you heard about the Web site called icanhascheezburger.com, with pictures of cats with captions? If you haven’t heard about it, or seen random pictures forwarded in emails or posted to blogs or Facebook, then you must never go online. The Web site itself is nothing new; it has been around since 2007 and is the largest of the blogs with lolcats, as they are called, on the Internet. What most people may not know is that lolcats has its own unique and intriguing culture. The captions are usually written out in lolspeak, a variation of English where the supposed way animals would speak, if they were able, is written phonetically and with horrible grammar. Not only is lolspeak used in the captions but also in the comments below the pictures where users share inside jokes, flirt, argue, play games, build friendships, become enemies and occasionally comment on the actual content.

Large and profitable local companies like Nu Skin, Xango, and Tahitian Noni not only offer you a great deal on these products, but they are also giving you a great opportunity to join their team and to make the big bucks for yourself! Or so you think. Some call it direct selling, others call it multi-level marketing, while many call it a pyramid scheme.
