Why can't the admins delete memes?

We learn a lot from the Deadpool.

If many duplicates appear one after another, it may signify that either there is a big important phenomenon that warrants lots of attention, or that there is some coordinated effort to force a meme. Both of these scenarios have occurred in the past, and deleting duplicates would erase any record of that.

Duplicates that are posted long after an entry has already been submitted teach us that new users are not acquainted with how to use the site, which motivates us to improve the user experience.

Sifting through the deadpool is like studying a stool-sample. It smells like shit, but it reveals information about the site’s health.
