Rule #4 of meme:

If you don't understand a meme then just write lol to mislead others.

Please can anyone tell me what is this?

This is a common practice on the internet known as a meme. There are certain pictures that circulate and become common for memes - people take these pictures and add text to them.

The meme shown here is from the TV show Futurama. The meme format is usually "Not sure if A or just B", usually for some scenario in which the author doesn't quite know what the explanation is.

What is a meme. Please give a clear explanation

Soham Dibyachintan - 3 years, 8 months ago

@Soham Dibyachintan There's "meme" as the term was originally coined by Richard Dawkins, and there's "meme" as it's generally meant on the Internet these days. Richard Dawkins meant it to be something analogous to a gene, but for ideas. Somebody generates a meme, if it's successful it gets spread around the culture. I don't know it in much more depth than that, you'd have to read for yourself.

Now this notion, as described by Dawkins, is very evident on the internet, as ideas can spread around very quickly. Viable ideas become popular very quickly. So people, being aware of this, I presume starting calling patterns of jokes "memes". One common pattern for a meme on the Internet is an "image macro", which is taking a commonly used image and putting a caption on it, such as Fry from Futurama in the original post. So far so good.

The problem is, people who aren't so aware start hearing the term "meme" and seeing image macros, and conclude that meme just means image macro, or running joke. When really, it has a broader definition than that. And sometimes the ignorance of the original meaning leads people to use it in a context that wouldn't make that much sense by the original definition.

Hope that was clear :)
