The art and method of defusing overused and overenacted memes and cliches into more humorous and intellectual humor. Sometimes a piece of countermemetry can become a meme in itself.
Notice also that countermemetry involves intrinsic knowledge of the meme and mechanics therein invoked to be successfully countered. Simply not getting the meme or joke is not countermemetry.

Charlie: Did you see the video of a Magikarp sweeping ubers?

Notice the use of countermemetry to begin a relevant Pokemon discussion.
