What memes do you know?
where did the term 'meme' even come from?
The modern use of the word is credited to Richard Dawkins
Something else we can blame him for
It's from the Selfish Gene yes?
The word meme was coined by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, as an attempt to explain the way cultural information spreads; Internet memes are a subset of this general meme concept specific to the culture and environment of the Internet.
Actually some of the best are the ones using the clip from Downfall and having Hitler react to stuff.
@Vince_Ulam posted one about OFSTED recently. Always good fun.
damn it, ignorant of my own field!
Is poor spelling a requirement of memes?
Me no understand.
Are they stereotypical representations of a race, group or ideology that are limited to internet usage/awareness? Are they pithy phrases? Cultural tags?
Or will my brain hurt if I try to understand?
How do you pronounce memes? Is it meems or me mes??
Only koolkidz pronounce it that way Spirit.
