My first cat meme

Never say never. I said I would NEVER put a cat meme over one of my photos. So tacky... but if you can't beat them, join them. Humor is a good thing, right?

I've never really understood why people started using the word "meme" to describe a funny caption on a photo. I guess it's more clever than simply saying "funny caption." 

For those of you who haven't heard the word "meme," congratulations because you are obviously not addicted to social media. Here's the official definition:

meme
mēm/
noun
noun: meme; plural noun: memes
    1    an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation.
    ◦    a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.

I'd like to thank my cat humor advisory committee: my cat-loving cousin, my brilliant aunt, and hilarious friend, Celia, for help in coming up with Eva the cat's caption. Celia wrote the final caption but it was truly a group effort. Where would I be without my friends and family?

Actually, my cousin came up with the dog concept. He thought the cat looked like she was up to no good. :)

The caption certainly WAS a group effort! You're the one who came up with the dog concept...I just moved some words around. Either way....I LOVE it! Your so crazy talented. I wish oh wish oh wish we lived in the same zip code. :-/ Heck...just the same county would be awesome.
