    As I stated earlier I am not labelling memes by their modes of
    transmission. So in the little set up Joe and I created there are no
    depictual memes as you put it. What we are doing here would qualify as
    C-mode transmission because it is the use of language to transmit memes
    which regardless of whether spoken, signed, written, or typed. If you can
    distinguish D-mode from I,A,or C as they were defined earlier go ahead.
