Meme

No, it’s not pronounced as /meh-meh/, dummy. It’s pronounced as /meem/, like cream, and its definition can’t be any simpler.

According to wikipedia, a meme is a unit of cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. The etymology of the term relates to the Greek word μιμητισμός [mɪmetɪsmos] for “something imitated”. Like mimicry. Put it in the context of new social media, and you have internet meme, which is basically the same, except the exchanges happen over the net.

Internet memes don’t have to be complicated. They can be as simple as sharing links to videos or posting images edited to be funny.  This part of Walk the Talk is dedicated to just that: collecting memes from various parts of the internet. There’s no other reason in doing it but just sharing and passing along some of the less recognized parts the internet culture.

I hope you guys have fun, and I hope you help these cute little memes to reach into the internet further.
