It's somewhat astonishing that people have taken the concept of a meme, and bastardized it into meaning "random pictures with text across them in an attempt at ironic humor". Meme (actually the full term was mimeme) was a Dawkins term, basically meaning a means of cultural transfer...fashion, music styles, speech patterns/slang, etc. It morphed in the early 2000s, particularly in news media/polical media into a snynonym for the underlying, often false or spun, narrative (e.g. "Romney is a job creator businessman" on one side vs. "Romney is a vulture capitalist"...competing memes or narratives). Leave it to the lowest common demoninator of the internet to retard this term into essentially meaning a lame attempt at campy, ironic, or quirky humor. I blame the hipsters.

Rock Climbing Photo: Mathematical!
Oh lord. The funniest thing about this thread is how awful the majority of these memes are. Believe it or not, there are correct and incorrect ways to use these things. Not that it really matters, of course. I mean, camhead's picture of Batman actually yelling the word "Slap!!!" gets me every time, even if that's not supposed to be the funny part :) Finn the Human

Often with no shirt, over balancing the feet with one handed hang momentum at the top, and doing a !fuck yeah, in the bag!movement with the free arm.
and if outdoors, not topping out of the rock, just jumping to the crash pad.
