    To be fair, isn't the word "meme" sort of misused all the time anyway? Calling something a meme is supposed to imply that there's been some kind of propagation of the idea or joke behind it, but we've stretched the definition in colloquial use to just mean any image with a joke in it.

    Much like calling something "viral" before anyone has seen it yet.

    The internet is weird.

    Ironically, yes.

    Richard Dawkins could write an updated book on the actual meme:

    'Misuse of the word meme'

    no, a meme isn't an image or a joke that necessarily went viral. it's an image/joke based on a template, with a slight variation in context from the original. hence the mimetic aspect of 'memes'.

    ... but who gives a carp, or a ship, because just post funny stuff.
