Memeness is definitely memeness, but just listen for a minute. You don’t understand this. When I was a boy — eighteen, nineteen — I was already on the usenet. And there was a question in my mind as to whether memeing had a future for me. Because in those days I had a yearning to go to Angelfire. See, there were three GIF strikes in one month in Angelfire, and I felt like going out. Just for the ride, you might say. Oh yeah, my father lived many years in Angelfire. He was an adventurous man. We've got a little streak of self-reliance in our family. I thought I'd go out with my older brother and try to locate him, and maybe settle in the North with the old man. And I was almost decided to go, when I met a memesman in the You' His name was GreatJustice420. And he was eighty-four years old, and he'd drummed lolcatz in thirty-one social networking sites. And old Justice, he'd go up to his room, y'understand, put on his all caps Impact font --I'll never forget--and pickup his livememe and post the memes, and without ever leaving his room, at the age of eighty-four, he made his memeing. And when I saw that, I realized that memeing was the greatest career a man could want. 'Cause what could be more satisfying than to be able to go, at the age of eighty-four, into twenty or thirty different forums, and pick up a dog picture, and be remembered and loved and helped by so many different people? Do you know? when he died--and by the way he died the death of a memesman, in his all caps Impact in the smoker of the 4 chan, 9Gag and Facebook, going into Tumblr--when he died, hundreds of memesmen and posters were at his funeral. Things were sad in a lotta threads for months after that. . .
