CHRIS There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
RICH What?
CHRIS Don't cross the memes.
CHRIS It would be bad.
RICH I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, bad?
CHRIS Try to imagine all bandwidth as you know it stopping instantaneously and every server in your building exploding at the speed of light.
STEVE Total moronic reversal?
RICH All right, that's bad.

Don't Cross the Memes!

meme /meem/ n. An idea considered as a replicator, esp. with the connotation that memes parasitize people into propagating them much as viruses do.

Do you remember "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US"? That was a meme. For no clear reason, people who heard it wanted to propagate it. It's viral information. The internet is full of memes, much like the rest of life. This is a well known fact.

When Memes Collide

But what happens When Memes Collide?

Given human nature, it's inevitable that memes will be combined, just as it is inevitable that the results of such unholy unions will be truly horrifying.

Never ones to shy away from the bitter truth (even if we have to make it up ourselves) Temple ov thee Lemur has performed extensive research into this subject.

So now brace yourself before proceeding to Our Monstrous Discoveries.

STEVE Funny, us going out like this. Destroyed by a series of crap internet jokes that just won't go away.
CHRIS I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways. We could reverse the humour flow through the web.
CHRIS We'll cross the Memes.
RICH Excuse me, Chris, you said crossing the Memes was bad.
STEVE Cross the Memes...
RICH You're gonna endanger us, you're gonna endanger our readers. The nice people who wasted their time on our site before it became a dog.
CHRIS Not necessarily. There's definitely a very slim chance we'll survive.

What do memes look like?

Memes look like this:
