A meme is like a virus. A virus of ideas which transfer from person to person through writing, speech, gestures and other cultural rituals. Most American adults understand the meaning derived from giving someone the finger. That’s a meme. Fashion styles evolve, catch phrases persist, and belief systems build as ideas spread through family, friends and the media.
Not that I flatter myself thinking that anything I have to offer here is worthy of a cultural pandemic. But, I hope to amuse, enlighten, and most likely antagonize.
Once you have read my blog and if you care not to return, please, refer back to my first example of a meme.
