A meme is a funny or ironic kind of joke you remember but you cannot really describe it or tell to anyone unless you share it and other people can understand it.

A meme is a theoretical unit of cultural information transmission that is reproduced (i.e. produced over and over again) on a large scale by active agents whose means of appropriation rely on the interplay between (pre-existing) biological, socio-cultural, and technological formations or assemblages.

A meme is:
- A theoretical unit of cultural information transmission that is indefinite.
- A widespread reproduction or re-appropriation of an existing cultural ‘thing’.
- Not just a veracious imitation according to one’s ability to perceive and copy.
- Not a reactive emotion (although emotions are often involved in the meme-process).
- But instead: a reproduction that is inferred by pre-existing knowledge and human intention.
- Dependent on biological, socio-cultural and technological formations.
- And on pre-existing memes that have already been circulating through culture.
Important note:
In contrast to what prevalent notions of the meme concept suggest, including Dawkins, a meme cannot be viewed as a contagious entity which 'infects' people when crossing their paths. Although some ideas, concepts, or practices may be more attractive and have a greater chance of being appropriated, memes do not act in the same manner as biological viruses.

1) An inside joke for people with no friends with whom to have actual inside jokes.

2) A method to give meaning to otherwise meaningless, pointless lives.

3) Something, ANYTHING, that is on the Internet.
"Woo, yeah! Milhouse is a meme, or something! I know what that refers to! I feel included!"

Dan is a meme in a human body form. He didn't choose the meme life , the meme life chose him.
