            In one sense this depends on whether one views texts as memes (or
    memeplexes) themselves or reflective of memes in culture- some would say the
    former, some the latter, others both, and some neither! Cultural
    inscription is reasonable IMHO.

            Surprising, perhaps, how many people into memes are familiar with
    Douglas Adams.
