Meme? Don't you mean "Monday Memo"? Isn't a meme like Marcel Marceau? Not quite. A meme, according to Merriam-Webster, is "an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture." In the culture of the Internet, it's anything including an image, video, picture -- but usually an image -- that spreads from person to person as it's mimicked. Each Monday, the Washington Examiner's Commentary staff brings you the Monday Meme.
