  • Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. Just as genes propagate themselves in the gene pool by leaping from body to body via sperms or eggs, so memes propagate themselves in the meme pool by leaping from brain to brain via a process which, in the broad sense, can be called imitation.

    - Richard Dawkins, The selfish gene, Inventor of the word 'meme'

  • In my day a meme where a character or image that had one overall message (10 guy; I’m high, socially awkward penguin; I’m awkward, scumbag Steve; scumbag) so you’d look at the central image and know “this is about anxiety” “this is about scumbaggery”

    The text around the image would then be he finesse the joke requires.

    Now a meme doesn’t have to be a particular thing at all, it’s just a post with words.

  • well nowadays its a bunch of words or one word on a pic that is meant to look funny or badly photoshopped 4 years ago it was actually a funny photo with a actually funny phrase and 8 years ago it was like a artform cause it was so rare people would just put a caption at the bottom of a pic and hope it was funny
