I'm hearing the siren of the 'Meme Police'. Unfortunately that siren is out of tune and going in the wrong direction.

Thanks for stepping in there, ?uesto.

It can still be fun while pointing out errors.

Memes are memes. Funny pictures with captions are not memes.

Craigslist has screening software that rejects correctly spelled drum items and brands. People have to do this just to be able to post.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_meme

Quote:
An Internet meme (pron.: /ˈmiːm/ meem) is a concept that spreads from person to person via the Internet.[1] The concept of a meme was defined and described by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, as an attempt to explain the way cultural information spreads;[2] internet memes are a subset of this, specific to the culture and environment of the internet.
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/meme
Quote:
: an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=meme
Quote:
A 'meme' doesn't have to be funny, provocative or even make sense. Most memes fall into one of three categories:

- 'Quirky' stuff that isn't funny.
- Pathetic stuff that fills you with vicarious despair.
- Revolting pictures that could be presented to some alien jury as evidence that humanity is cancer.
Thus by definition, a funny pictures with captions can indeed be a meme, as it is a way of transmitting a cultural concept, idea or behavior from one person to another.

I'd like to make a request to swap 'Mapex Badges' and 'Sticks4Drums' in your canto diagram.

Honorary post of the month award all the same!

Guys, forget the "is it or isn't it" thing and get on with it. Top Gun was just pointing out the convention, but just because there's a convention does that mean we MUST follow it? Should you limit your expression just because of some convention??

Looks like it's time for The Pep Talk (apologies to Todd and his stick twirling gag)

Absolutely. Mr Gun actually has a point that we've all taken certain liberties with the "meme rules" but it's all just a bit of fun and it's not like anyone's submitting these to Memebase to be critiqued by random people on the interwebs.
No-one outside our humble little forum would get the jokes anyway : )

Took it off, Bo. You can never be sure how people will take these things - I've seen it go either way. Depends on the people and the timing. Didn't get a win this time - oh well.
