Proposition: From now on, the word "meme" will be used as a term referring to "templates" and "vaguely defined memetic structures". Examples: Pepe, Bane, DFW...
A new term "mememe" however, will be used to refer to definite subunits of memes, which are not only structures, but can be objectively expressed visually, linguistically, aurally etc. The term's designed to resemble words like "morpheme" and "semanteme", but have a meme-like twist, consisting of a three-fold reiteration of a silly syllable. Examples for mememes: Pic related, "You're a big guy"...
Bait? What do you mean? It's not even a provocative post. I'm seriously suggesting that we take this stand, and make our contribution to the growing field of memetics and semantics with our wicked sense of humour included.
Well, I knew academia wouldn't seriously consider my metamodernist approach, but I wasn't expecting this nonchalant and pretentious demeanor from you. I am deeply disappointed.
I attach a picture of Zizek to beguile you into thinking.
Oh, you mean that. Well, while vocalizing surely "mememe" would turn out as "meemeem". Sorry, I'm used to speak Turkish in which "syllables" are written functions more than vocal functions, because of the relatively developed phonemic orthography of the modern Turkish language. I made a terminological mistake, apparently.
Could someone please explain to me why pepe is so interested in urine and feces?
And why is Wojak always so disturbingly angry at him? Is Wojak his care giver or something? You think he'd be used to it by now.
Because 'poo poo' sounds like Pepe.
Wojak is angry because despite being best friends, the shadow reflection of Pepe's personality makes him sometime perform awful things to Wojak.
it was originally a change to prevent other may may distribution channels from stealing pepes and giving them away for free, crashing the pepe economy.
it was really getting out of hand. people were identifying with pepe who really had no business at all knowing about him. so I'd reflexively chant other memes at them like a masonic handshake to see if they were one of us. which led to me asking how new they were, only to be met with hysterical confusion.
holy shit you are a faggot. why not just use english properly and say that meme refers to the class while mememe refers to an object.
>tfw "me" is now the superclass
