Spreading a meme doesn’t automatically make it cancer. Memes are named after genes, which means that communication is the means through which it stays “alive”. If nobody communicates to others about or through memes, then it is just a single person’s thought and it dies with that person. Cancer, on the other hand is complete, over-the-top, shameless use of memes that is often uninformed, forced, or otherwise stupid.

Sometimes I feel like the whole internet is full of meme hipsters. Then I slap myself for being so stupid and hoping otherwise.
