How people take Meme's is often a reflection on them:
- Adults, looking for enlightenment and self-improvement, can chuckle when the other side catches them in a bit of mock-worthy hypocrisy.
- Fragile egocentric people can get outraged by them.
- Dishonest memes (where the premise is a lie), reflects more on the publisher/author than reader
- Honest memes are sort of a snowflake meter: perpetually outraged or those that can ignore or chuckle, both reflect more on the reader than the author (or publisher) of such little barbs.
So memes are sort of a dick-o-meter depending on what people post, and how they react either to the meme, or to corrections of them.
