It’s come to this: The language of the “I Can Has Cheezburger?” LOLcats has infiltrated the copywriting found on Google AdSense display ad units.

So readeth the one I ran across, above:

WE’RE IN UR VENUE
TRANSFORMIN THE SPACE

I wonder how effective this feline-inspired broken English is for SGA Production Staging, which provides event facility rental equipment. Is there a direct correlation between meeting planners and kitty comedy? SGA gets marks for cyber-hipness, in any case.

I’m not sure which of the above wordplays I like better.

A startup, as in a just-launched business venture, often by nature is an upstart in its industry.

On the other hand, there’s no such thing as a “hedgeslammer”. But as fast-and-loose as the hedge fund industry is, I can see this made-up word (courtesy of yours truly) being employed in the near future to describe some crusading public official who goes after the unregulated money holes, and uses sledgehammer-like methods to lay down the hurt.
