    Yes she could also tell her daughter what she would do if she would
    be an alcoholic aggressive mother and her daughter would receive this
    meme too.

    But maybe she IS an alcoholic aggressive mother and just prefers
    treating her directly!

    Memes are not everything, if someone wants to hit you in the face, he
    most probably is going to hit you in the face rather than describing
    the process of doing so.

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
