Guys I'm like JUST hungover enough to quite fancy a full day of memes.
post some funny like memes, ok?
My dad was talking about that rudetube telly programme as part of casual conversation the other day.
what is she called? is she even a meme?
can someone post some business cat?
I just need to get him a collar and a tie
^ take your pick
ITTY BITTY BABY
This made me giggle at my desk
Because she reminds me of a mate's ex, quite a lot.
what exactly IS a meme and what isn't
spread through shared cultural references and juxtaposition of, mis or re-appropriation of the same.
or you could read this;
religious dogma in the days before sit-coms.
be using it differently (I think) like an actual picture like 'bisiness cat' so all this is is a common reference to a commonly accessable ACTUAL picture and caption
than the stuff dawkins was talking about though.
What is an internet meme?
To me, it's an injoke, where the incrowd is quite large and consists of people who spend too much time on the internet rather than doing constructive things like knitting pokemon bodysuits for cats or helping achieve a universal oneness with each other through cultural exchange and understanding.
What makes a meme?
A meme is only really a meme if it's duplicated and retransmitted. If only one person uses it, or a potential meme isn't taken up, it's just one person's weirdness/typo/time filler. If too small a group use it, no one hears about it and it's just lame and becomes extinct fairly quickly.
I wouldn't worry too much about it to be honest, most memes are short lived and have a built in self-destruct mechanism which kicks in once a certain level of popularity/infection is achieved. It's at this point that the 'cool kids' start taking the piss out of it, or it's deemed outré.
When i were a lad;
Memes were catchphrases my friends and i picked up from books, films and tv programs we all liked, some were more popular than others, some caught on, some didn't.
And after a while, we'd hear someone use 'BRILLIANT' or 'deydododontdeydo' (for example) and eye roll at each other. Same deal with internet memes, only more prolific and wider spread. And you can buy merchandising of your favourites more easily.
the meaning of the word meme has mutated to include non mutable but oft repetitions of things that they just become ingrained in many peoples brains.....common unofficial non-knowledge that is known by many perhaps?
but particularly this:

i heard you like memes so i put a meme in your meme so you can meme while you meme

or really stupid
