As we delve into the cracks and crevices of the internet to entertain you here at the Whale, we learn stuff. Like today. I found out what a meme is.

You've seen them, you've probably re-posted them on Facebook, but now you will learn what it is!

  1. An element of a culture or behavior that may be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, esp. imitation.
  2. An image, video, etc. that is passed electronically from one Internet user to another.
So, now you know when you post those funny or cute pictures on Facebook what they really are!  Check out the gallery of some of my favorites.
