    So you claim.

    The only meme you _have_ performed for me is writing this claim. It is the only thing I have apprehended.

    A claim is not a song.

    I might continue the 'Joe doesn't know the correct words to London Bridge is Falling Down' contention, but that isn't a meme, either.

    My writing it was, though.

    As long as someone reads it.

    No-one heard your song.

    It was not a meme.

    The music I'm listening to on my own computer, in the office, right now, is, though. Other people are hearing it. It's a minor behavior, effecting what other people listen to, but, it is right here, and right now.

    Of course, it is not a meme you have perception of, just my account of it.

    Which is all you might need to know to accomplish a similar thing, in your own office, if allowed.

    But it would only be a similar thing.

    And it is with similar things that memetics is involved, not with identical things.
