What does it Meme?
Memes make me laugh. At first they were kind of cool, but now they just make me chuckle. They just seem so unoriginal anymore. At first there were only a few and they were creative, but now people use the same fonts and the same style pictures to generate messages that are, needless to say, kind of boring. Maybe I’m just a grump or don’t see the point, but I’m not a fan of memes. I’m a fan of real messages. A meme to me is a random picture with random words that have little, or no, value. But real messages have value. They have lots of thought go into them, they have intention, they have drive and purpose. Poems, prose, essays, and articles all have a depth that can rarely be found in these culturally addictive picture messages.
So I guess, in light of this, this questions presents itself: Isn’t it better to write creatively and be unnoticed than to have your words be a carbon copy of mass acceptance?
