Morgan Freeman is voicing a Lego Minifigure holding a chewed up lolipop as a staff giving a speech about the most creative person in the universe to a bunch of random Lego Minifigures while a pink unicorn cat named Unikitty is watching. Your argument is invalid.

The discussion of “ad hominem” attacks has very little to do with this meme. The meme doesn’t attempt to discredit the argument by discrediting the arguer; rather, it claims to discredit the argument by presenting something bizarre and irrelevant, without any obvious logical connection. The Pancake Bunny link is more apropos. It also seems similar to South Park’s “Chewbacca Defense.” Argumentum ad hominem doesn’t enter into it.

“Argumentum ad hominem” is obviously Latin.
When translated literally, it means “argument to human”.
Actually, when a word ends in “m” in Latin, that’s usually their equivalent of our word “the”.

No, it’s not. Articles don’t exist in Latin, period. “Puer”, meaning “boy”, can be translated into English as “a/the boy”. No “m” at the end. “Hominem” is just the accusative case of “homo” (man), which itself can take an article when it’s translated into English. The famous phrase “ecce homo” is translated as “behold the man”. “Behold A man” is an equally valid translation too, but doesn’t work in English in the phrase’s usual context.

“Ad” can also mean “toward” or “at”. “Argument toward the human/man”, “argument at the human/man”.
