I have been trying to see the cartoons themselves on the web. They are
difficult to find and apart from frustrating me inasmuch as I would like to
see for myself what all the fuss is about, this difficulty suggests that the
cartoon meme is finding it much, much more difficult to 'propagate itself'
on the www compared to other memes.
Questions: (1) where can I actually see the cartoon meme; and (2) is there
really an active process that is inhibiting the spread of this meme in a way
that is categorically peculiar to this specific meme?
