Ok. Here's another suggestion, by way of being constructive. Instead of
just listing "Meme Links," consider splitting it into 2 sections: "Meme
Links," and "The Lighter Side of Memes." Items such as the animated lion,
the Church of Virus, the "Generosity Virus," and the junk mail reading
could go in the lighter side. This will help stop those deadly serious
research scientists and skeptics getting the URL from SKEPTIC Mabazine from
concluding that memeticists have no scientific standards.
