Gus appreciates everyone’s efforts. He only regrets that nobody was willing to shell out $1,125 to bid on Cute Overload‘s auction so that he could be REALLY famous. That’s OK. Gus understands.

    I love number three — Does this make my butt look fat?

    No, Gus. Your butt could never look fat.

    Poor Gus! He was just making a little kitty porn (for his own enjoyment, of course) and now it’s out there for the whole world to see!!

  3. 3 Kelly

    Very good, Gus! I’ve given each of them a vote over on ICHC. I hope to see you on the front page soon!

    Woohoo! I am very proud that my caption made it to the top three! One small step for cat, one giant step for Gus’ behind.

    Gus deserves to be #1 at cheezburger! I love all the captions, but #1 really made me laugh out loud! Good luck!

  8. 8 Angi

    HAHA…this is awesome. I think I like #1 the best, but they’re all hilarious. My coworker and I waste WAY too much time on icanhascheeseburger at work… ;)

    Hurrah for Gus! I love Lolcats – If I spent as much time studying maths as I do making ‘funnee speld capshuns’ I’d be a Professor Emeritus at Cambridge University by now. Probably.

    Wow – I’m amazed! All those captions and you chose mine? I’m so flattered!! Thank you!

    I hope he does well on ICHC!! Good luck, Gus!!

    In the interest of double-buttedness, I voted for all three TWICE! If you vote from different PCs (IP addresses), you can cast votes multiple times for multiple butts. Gus, you will be famous. You have The Power.

    Cardiogirl: Gus appreciates your comment. Looking too fat has been a big concern of his since we got our kitten. Suddenly he’s gone from sturdy to HUGE.

    Lori: HA! I never thought of that! No wonder he looked so guilty when I snapped the picture!

    Kelly: Thank you for your votes! I think Gus makes a better lolcat than any of the ones currently on the front page, but then I may be a little prejudiced.

    Scratch Bags: Thanks so much for voting! Yes, we should all do whatever it takes to make BOTH of Gus’s butts famous!

    Daisy the Curly Cat: And soon YOU will be famous for your thought-provoking documentary shorts featuring Mr. Shrill!

    regan: Thanks for the cheezburgers! I just signed up to submit these lolz, so I don’t have much online. But my username is IDoThings.

    kathcom: Thank you! I hope Gus can achieve his dream of fame. But if not, he’s very happy with all the new friends he’s made here.

    Angi: I love all the captions. It was a lot of fun. I definitely think all 3 of these are contenders for the front page.

    Athena: Thanks for your vote! Gus appreciates it!

    Babs – beetle: Thank you, Babs! Gus will be famous in a matter of hours!

    Tiggy: I think Cambridge has just added a LolProf program to their curriculum, so you may want to enter.

    Jay: Congratulations! Well-deserved. Gus canNOT lose!

    Kathy: No one knows better than you The Power of Gus, so Gus’s fame is a sure thing. Thank you for the multiple-butt votes!

  15. 15 Chat Blanc

    I love all three!! I had to vote 5 cheeseys for all three, I couldn’t decide! Unfortunately my cat Maxx was no help at all, he just kept checking out his own butt in the mirror.

  16. 16 Elle

    Yay Gus! Thank you for your obvious good taste. I owe you many ear scratches. (None of this worked out in advance, I promise…)

    Elle’s last blog post..Jamie Lynn: Beware the Colic Nights

  17. 17 Maureen

    Great caps!!! I voted. Good luck JD and Gus!

  18. 18 Rob Kroese

    Ha! The first one was pretty good.

    Rob Kroese’s last blog post..Last Chance!

  19. 19 JD

    Chat Blanc: Oh, Maxx. If you work at it, you can achieve fame just as Gus has done. And then we’ll all be voting for YOU!

    Elle: Gus does love the ear scratch AND being told he has good taste. No one is suspicious, are they . . . ?

    Maureen: Thanks for voting!

    Rob Kroese: Yup. That was Gus’s favorite, although he had trouble choosing. You just can’t go wrong with Gus as your subject.

    Awwwww. my butt squared thing didn’t work out. lol He’s still super precious!

    Ah christ, somebody wake Rickey when the whole lolcat craze is over…

  22. 22 Jenny

    Congratulations Jay, Daisy and Elle! All the entries were eminently Gus-worthy!

    Jenny’s last blog post..God Bless America … and Josh

  23. 23 Babs - beetle

    Oh I forgot to say that Gus is so adorable, I could give him lots of kisses ;O)

    Babs – beetle’s last blog post..I missed them both!

  24. 24 JD

    Corrina: I’m sorry! Gus really wanted everyone to win and have each caption submitted to Cheezburger, but I had to tell him I have a life and a job and have better things to do than submit 15 lolz for a blog post. Your caption was awesome and Gus appreciates your contribution!

    Rickey Henderson: Hope you need to catch up on your sleep, ‘cuz lolcats are here to stay!

    Jenny: Thanks! And to be Gus-worthy requires the highest quality. (no more penny?)

    Babs – beetle: Just between you and me, I think Gus would rather have kisses than fame.

  25. 25 Rickey Henderson

    Yeah, Rickey supposes that protesting lolcats is like tring to rage against the inevitable ebb of the sea. The thing with the lolcat is that for some of the pictures (the ones where they bare their teeth) Rickey would be willing to guess that the people taking the pictures are goading the cats into making those faces. And that shit aint right.

    Rickey Henderson’s last blog post..Farewell, Whiskers of Glory

  26. 26 JD

    Rickey Henderson: That reminds me of when we were kids, we used to squeeze our cats to get them to make a certain sound. We also dressed them up in doll clothes. That shit ain’t right, either.

  27. 27 banquet manager

    I’ve had cats all my life but never one as famous as Gus. Hell, none that ever did anything except sleep all day and poop! I still love them though.

    Awesome. Do we have to register on the site to vote?

  29. 29 dcr

    banquet manager: Your cats sound perfect. It’s hard to reach the level of fame that Gus has thus far achieved. Thanks for stopping by!

    Margaret: Nope! That’s the beauty of it. Just click on a cheezburger icon above the picture (5 is the best rating) and . . . voila! Gus is famous! Thank you for your support.

    dcr: I know! You almost won. Had you just entered . . .

    Niarobian: Much love for Gus! You’re welcome!
