in reply to Mameme

Malik is a meme expert. He knows all the ins and outs. He knows about Thot Patrol (which unfortunately still doesn't have an entry here) and he's always up to date on the latest and greatest memes, some you've probably never even heard of. To compare him to Buscemi's intentionally bad attempt at being hip and cool is an insult to years of meme studies and research. He's not like those advertisements that try way too hard to incorporate stale memes like Dat Boi and Arthur's Fist or something along those lines into their ads. Malik inhales the memes. He exhales the memes. Injects the memes into his bloodstream. He needs the memes to survive.
