We discussed this already; Chatbots are not memes. While they can recite meme classics and generate occasional lulz, they do not bring anything new to the table. No derivatives, no terminology, no mutation. It can be like a troll, but it is not a troll.

Keyboard Cat and Rickroll are both recognized in the game Scribblenauts, but that doesn’t make Scribblenauts a meme.

Also, I got my niece obsessed with Badger Badger Badger but that doesn’t make her a meme.

Here’s something else I imagined that made me laugh.

“Come on kids, we’re going to your uncle Chris’ house.”

“Aww really? He always makes us watch the Flying House thing and we don’t have the heart to tell him no one enjoys it as much as he does.”

“And then he makes us act out parts afterwards.”

“And he keeps talking about making it through checkpoint charlie and we have no idea what the hell he’s talking about.”

“It’s all right kids, maybe some day science will find a cure for that.”
