an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation."
I don't recall the first time I saw a meme or when they started calling them memes, but it's evident that they are viral all over the internet. Personally, I find the whole aspect of memes in internet culture to be annoying; they detract from good conversation and clutter social media with meaningless bullshit. However, some of them do make me laugh on occasion, but overall I wish they weren't so pervasive.
How do you all feel about internet memes?
