#30YearsofGIFs – 3

 

This cute little GIF, a US-style letter box that opens to reveal a cluster of hearts, was a popular feature on the user-generated network of sites called GeoCities during the 1990s. It was, as appearance suggests, use to indicate links to emails. Sadly I don’t know its origins.

We leave Chris Brown and his misogynistic shenanigans behind and jump into a waiting LOLS-Royce. Unfettered luxury that will have you ROFL-ing in exuberant style. This car is sure to be on every internet slang hauling wannabe cyber-rapper’s wishlist.

Baron and the bills

 

Way back in May 2016, we featured a clever cat named Baron who waits for the post to arrive in the morning before running off with it (see the post here). Here’s another GIF of the family dog’s worst nightmare, showing just fast the cat is at its receptionist duties. Well done Baron!
