Google describes memes as “an element of a culture or system of behavior passed from one individual to another by imitation or other non-genetic means.” However, in the context of popular culture, memes are funny videos or images that take a dig at something or make fun of something.

Memes have become a part of our popular discourse and everyone enjoys them. Heck, even politicians today share memes that they find funny.
