YOU Know What a "MEME" is...
You're actually (probably) WRONG.[But feel free to skip this background/explainer part and just scroll down to see some of the actual products]
DID YOU KNOW...
ALL "INTERNET Memes" are "MEMES" - but NOT ALL "MEMES" are "INTERNET Memes"...??#FACTS
- The word "INTERNET" does NOT actually appear in most definitions of "MEME"
- In most places, "MEME" and "INTERNET MEME" actually have 2 different entries
[For example, Wikipedia goes so far as to offer preemptive clarification (circled below)]
Conflicting reports, but:- Some say the word originated in the 1970s: "from Greek mimēma ‘that which is imitated’, on the pattern of gene"
- Elsewhere, you can find:
Use over time for: meme
[Editor's Note: Regardless of whether it was the 1700s or 1970s, we're pretty sure the INTERNET wasn't super-popular back then.]
Honestly, we really don't care what anybody calls anything... That was basically just our proactive response (guilty-conscience?) to those who will inevitably give us sh*t ("But that's NOT a MEME!") - as we RE-Think / RE-Imagine traditional internet memes and launch some Meme-LIKE products - that you can physically touch and pass around OFFline! - IN REAL LIFE!
So... What's Our Point??
-- Handed out at work or school? Left to be found on a desk or chair? Placed in a locker or mailbox?
-- "Accidentally" left behind in a break-room or coffee shop? on a plane, train, or in the back seat of your Uber/Lyft/Taxi?
Memes... In Real Life?? ...By Mail?? ...On Cards?? ...WHATEVER!!!
