So, internet memes, they're great aren't they? They have various origins and sources, some come from games and for multiple reasons, whether it be poor translation of a localized game or perhaps an error in the voice over track that no one caught initially.

Others have even formed due to certain cultures of particular websites and/or forums (such as the VGF). Whatever the origin, meaning or purpose, most internet memes are quite funny.

That being said, I've launched this very same thread elsewhere and it has caught fire. Knowing that VGF'ers like nothing better than to apply memes where and whenever they see the opportunity, such as the immortal: "because you touch yourself at night" I'm doing the same here.

So here are the rules:

#1 Read the rules. (Duh) I mean, come on...

#2 Post as you customarily would, except ensure the inclusion of a meme.

#3 No repeats of already used memes, as this is a test of your creativity, re-using the same old ones would show that you clearly have none.

#4 As stated in the post above which you probably didn't read, you illiterate you, any memes from any source would be accepted. Especially those born of video games.

#5 Try to be as creative with your post as possible, the meme on it's own would be... well... BORING, so attempt to bake it into your post, so that it appears as a natural part of it. If you manage to do that, well then - A Winner Is You!!

#6 Speaking of that, there are no actual winners or losers of this game, but... yeah you'd be a loser in my book if you don't even try. I did originally plan to have rewards... well I had cookies, but I don't know where they went, okay? NO COOKIES! Got it? Good.

Lastly here's a video that helped spawn the inspiration for this thread: http://www.gamespot.com/shows/gamingmeme/?event=lost_in_translation20130224

Right then. On your marks, get set....

Go. Get. Your. Meme. On.

Sound Off Below.
Keep It Clean.
And Have Fun.

I dislike how "meme" has come to mean "a funny picture or video" rather than Richard Dawkins' original sense of the word (i.e. the basic quanta of cultural ideas, traditions, practices, etc.)

Perhaps the basic quanta of cultural ideas, traditions and practices has become "a funny picture of video"

That sounds like zeitgeist not meme.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 25, 2013 9:32:48 AM PST
That which happened.

DVvM says:
No, Zeitgeist is the dominant cultural fashion. Memes are things that propagate cultural values, ideas, or practices.

I zerg rushed kekekekeke into this thread thinking it would be fun but it's an epic fail. I'm calling the BBB over this.

Gotcha. The VGF is really expanding my vocabulary.

While you are there, can you file a complaint for me about Lair?

Cinema Fan says:
Yeah, but I'm sure my complaint will just rot on the BBB's shelves.

Here are my rules:
1. Don't take as much time to write a post as it would take to actually play a videogame.
The end.

I honestly think that "Wii U games sells dozens and dozens of copies" would be a good meme.

That meme belongs at the bottom of Lake Luster.

Hey, don't blame me if I've got bit more rattling upstairs than you do... okay that was a bit harsh. I guess what I'm trying to say is - Knowledge is Power.
