MEME? What is a MEMEMEME? And can I use it in Scrabble??

And is this like the tag-you're-it game?

Sorry dear, MEME isn't in the Official Scrabble dictionary (third edition). Maybe it'll make the fourth edition.

The word was coined by Richard Dawkins (yes, that Dawkins) in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene to mean a self-propagating cultural trait. It's gained popular usage among bloggers for the web-based equivalent of a chain letter.

Glad that I read your explanation to Joyce. That is good info!

I used to think it was pronounced Me Me, as in all about me.

I didn't read the above post because lets face it, I know when something is completely over my head.

I hope that you have a pleasant evening!
