On your feet now — applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. Psalm 100:1-2 MSG
And a few dogs . . .
When my husband and daughter couldn’t stop laughing over “yes, this is dog,” a few weeks ago I finally asked, “whats a meem?”
Now you know why I still don’t twitter and have trouble operating the remote control for the space command media center in our basement.
Just in case there is one other person in the world who hasn’t heard of “memes,” let me help you. A meme is defined as an idea or thought (image, joke, quote, symbol) that spreads from person to person (goes viral) and becomes popular.
Why does the joke, image, thought, or idea go viral? Nobody’s been able to answer that question for me yet.
I’ve noticed that images of cats and bacon–anything bacon–have become particular obsessions for memologists, or meminators, or memaholocs . . . whatever they call themselves.
“This is an open day for anything…humor, maybe a bowl of ice cream, why you love bacon, some music, a painting of your cat…”
Here’s what one brave writer submitted:
Mick Silva, a poem with a cat and bacon deserves its very own meme. 🙂
Praying for the beauty of bacon and cats, smiles and laughter, to color your life beautiful today.
