Mim’s Memes or Memes of Mim

When your brother makes memes of all the cat photos you send him. (Memes is the correct word, right? I am too old for this. Also, where does that word come from?*)


*Meme comes from the Greek word mimema, “that which is imitated.” It was coined by Richard Dawkins (seriously?) in The Selfish Gene (SERIOUSLY?) to explain how cultural information is spread.

You can find an answer to everything on the internet.
