Well now, this is an odd one.

It looks like Flickr is host to a bizarre new breed of lolpics.

Loldeirdre is a user who has posted six pictures of councillor Deirdre Alden that have been lol-ed.

Is this a new phenomenon that will take off, I wonder. Are we set to see a lolNev, or a lolMike user appearing in future?!

    Shouldn’t that title be Lolcal Politics?

    Strangely enough, the source images are from her blog.

    Is there a Fake Deirdre blog hanging around somewhere a la Fake Steve?

    Pete: yes, I bow to your superior wordplay.

    Stef: Just checked out Deidre’s blog – so they are! No fake Deidre blogs yet that I can find, but I guess it’s a niche someone could fill if they were so inclined!!!

    Well, it looks like anyone can join in. I did a few, stuck them on my server, Flickrmailed the loldeirdre account and, boom, there they are!

    What fun!

    We do need to get Martin M up there too.

    Oh yes, purely for my own interests there should be more pictures of Cllr Mullaney.
