Meme (pronounced meem): An idea, belief or element of social behavior spread that is transmitted from one person or group of people to another.
This word was coined in the '70s by Richard Dawkins, the atheist godman worshipped by neckbeards everywhere.
Simply put, Internet memes are memes that spread on the Internet through social networking sites, blogs, email, news sources, and so on. In the real world they're called "ideas," but pseudo-intellectuals prefer "memes."
WHERE DO INTERNET MEMES COME FROM?
Amongst all the stupid crap on the Internet are hilarious gems of wit and wisdom. Most of the best memes start as images shared on the Web and, by some great misfortune, they find their way into the lecherous hands of drunken basement trolls who mutate these images into the hilarious, the lame, and sometimes the downright bizarre.
