Faithful reader Andrew Glines has created what might be the first-ever Language Log mashup...

Long time reader, first time poster, and linguistics graduate student who should really be doing other things than photoshopping recent Language Log entries into eggcorns. But I could not help misreading locavore / localvore as being prefixed by lol-, and then could not help but apply appropriate text to a photo... resulting in the pic attached. Enjoy!

(That's a picture of the coiner of locavore, Jessica Prentice, who probably never guessed she'd get the lolcat treatment.)
