    It was said to and by me last night at dinner during a conversation about memes.

        Nope, it's from the Greek. So it's pronounced like the 'eme' in phoneme, sememe, morpheme etc.


        Ok, so they share a common ancestor. I wonder if Dawkins intended for "meme" to become a meme.

          Yes, often, and usually pronounced as meem. It comes up a lot with some of the people I know because they love knowyourmeme and 9gag.

              It's one of those words like "paradigm."

              Using it in your writing marks you as an intellectual.

              Using it in conversation marks you as a douchebag.

                I wasn't aware that having a good vocabulary and using it automatically made one a douchebag, asswipe.

                  And why is that? Sometimes, either of those are exactly the correct word and you sound like a clumsy idiot if you tip-toe around them.

                    The way you worded that title "..to you.." made me chuckle. As if someone just walked up to you on the street, spit out a loud "MEME" in your face, and continued on their way. Kind of like The Knights Who Say 'Meme" or something.


                    Without the "to you", he'd just be asking if the word had ever been spoken aloud .

                      No. This makes you a high school teacher who thinks anti-intellectualism is dangerous.

                        IRL, "meme" is pronounced as "fad".

                          To me, "fad" is more of a style or entertainment type of thing, while memes can be those and more (politics in media has a plethora of them (is plethora another one of the words that marks you as an ****************************? (or for that matter imbedded parentheses? (oh dear I should probably stop)))).

                              Yes. And they say "meem." I read it as "maim" and refuse to change. Because "meem," what the **************** is that.
