Amazing Memes

Every once in awhile, a great meme crosses my path and I can’t help but share it.

What’s a meme? According to everyone’s favourite source, Wikipedia,

In its most basic form, an Internet meme is simply an idea that is propagated through the Web. This idea may take the form of a hyperlink, video, website, hashtag, or even just a word or phrase. This meme may spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, news sources, and other web-based services.

Two hilarious memes have crossed my path this week, one featuring Rick Astley and the other James Van Der Beek.

PR superstar Sarah Dawson posted this amazing image on Facebook today and I can’t help but share it.

the "stud wink"

are just begging to be included in your emails to friends.
