I have come across this site called quickmeme.com (here) where people ‘make’ and post up what are supposed to be memes. Technically they aren’t really memes because, from my understanding of what a meme is, a meme is a truism passed down through generations by repetition and possibly associated with small acts or plays.
In fact I am now looking it up in my faithful Chambers Dictionary and they say a meme is … OMG! They don’t have ‘meme’ in my Chambers Dictionary. Holy Cow!
Okay. There has to be a Chambers Dictionary online somewhere. I will check that.
Well I found Chambers Dictionary online (here) but they still don’t have ‘meme’ listed. So that makes it official then. Meme is not even a real word.
As a last resort I will try Wikipedia, but as we all know you cannot trust stuff in Wikipedia.
Maybe in these days of the Internet memes has a new meaning.
Anyway I found some of the so-called memes on Quickmeme quite humorous.
