Which today are becoming an acceptable form of communication amongst the Facebook generation, have been around for as long as the Internet. The earliest memes were cultivated more than a decade ago by technologically savvy teenagers on gaming forums, and consisted of such hilarity as misspelled words and numbers substituted for letters. Many Internet users would argue that memes have not come far since, while many others would argue that these guys have sticks up their ends. Regardless, what started off as nerd lingo has become a pervasive Internet phenomenon.

Though utterly nonsensical from an outsider’s perspective, memes are as grounded in Internet lore as a Google search. Literally anything can become a meme, from humorous videos and memorable quotes to posts made by other users. Nothing is safe from memehood and (as the malleable Advice God1 proves outright) nothing is sacred.
