"A unit of cultural information that represents a basic idea that can be transferred from one individual to another, and subjected to mutation, crossover and adaptation."

Kinda like a viral video that people keep making parodies and remakes of. =D

Pronounced (Meem; rhymes with dream)
Dude #1: Hey, "Unforgivable" is such a meme! Everyone's making a version of their own!

Memes are the all powerful life source of every teen or gamer in the world. No human being under 25 can simply resist looking at 1 meme a day. Although memes may empower us, they can also takeover, with you being stuck in an endless 24 hour cycle looking at them. A meme can be anything, it can be your cat, or your drunk sibling. The best part of memes, they are created by anyone ( including you ) in the world
Ex 1:
Teen: Yo! I'm looking at some new memes bro!

Gamer: Dude, careful not to get sucked into the meme vortex.

Teen (24 hours later): Lol! that meme is hilarious! Check it out du- Hey? Where'd you go?

Ex 2:

Brother 1: Bro, I'm going to make a meme today.

Brother 2: Careful dude, with great power comes great responsimemeity.

Brother 1 (2 minutes later): Um... bro. I just made a meme 2 minutes ago and it has 69,000 views already.

1. An unnecessary word for 'trend' or 'fad'.

2. A special word meaning 'trend' or 'fad' that occurs soley on the internet.

Fun facts:

Meme was a term coined by Richard Dawkins who, like his religious followers, thought he was coming up with something original when he came up with the word 'Meme', nor recognizing that there were already at least two words in the English language to describe this phenomena. (See above.)

Meme is now currently used almost esclusively within the confines of the second definition given here, to mean a trend or fad on the internet.
I don't think I need to provide examples. You wouldn't be here if you didn't know what a meme was.

And if you really don't know and you are reading this let me be the first to warn you: the internet is a horrible place and I encourage you in all sincerity not to use it for anything more than emails and whatever your work forces you to use it for.

Go live real life and enjoy. You don't want to meet the people on here the internet is a sad indictment on humanity.
