The Meaning Behind the Name

I prefer to use the username lolwut online when I can; when it is unavailable, I use lolwut9001. (+1 Internets to you if you understand the meaning behind that particular number.) It is a reference to an old image macro (now over 10 years old—unbelievable!), which I found funny back in the day:

LOL WUT

The painting is a DeviantArt submission, The Biting Pear of Salamanca.
