What the Heck Does "Meme" Mean?

Okay. So I know what a "meme" is, but why is it called that? I always called them survey thingies. Or good old "questionnaires". But apparently they are "memes." And how do you pronounce that? "May may?" "Mee mee?" "Meem?" I don't know...but here's one for your reading pleasure. This is courtesy of my friend Abbey, who's last name shall remain...well...nameless, as you will see later on.

It rhymes with 'cream'. It comes from a Greek word. Thank you, Wikipedia.

Super excited for Friday!

two of these really stand out for me: one, "whatever day is the least stressful" and "when was the last time you cried?"
