LOLcat Epidemiology

From the LOLinator visitor stats, the top 10 LOL-loving nations (measured using page views per visit; countries with trivial traffic excluded):

  1. Jamaica
  2. Ireland
  3. Taiwan
  4. Chile
  5. Estonia
  6. Czech Republic
  7. United Kingdom
  8. Israel
  9. Brazil
  10. Argentina

And the top 10 LOL-haters (lowest page views per visit):

  1. Croatia
  2. Hungary
  3. New Zealand
  4. China
  5. France
  6. Lithuania
  7. Bulgaria
  8. Romania
  9. Iceland
  10. Austria

It’s not the simple correlation with English usage that I’d expected (other languages aren’t ‘translated’), so perhaps the data finally reveals to us the earth-shattering knowledge of how countries feel about combining cats with stupid captions.
