Buddhists have been doing this meme thing for a long time...

etc.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.

And I quote:
meme
/miːm/
noun
1.
an element of a culture or system of behaviour passed from one individual to another by imitation or other non-genetic means.
2.
an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users, often with slight variations
"My religion is not deceiving myself."
Jetsun Milarepa 1052-1135 CE

"Butchers, prostitutes, those guilty of the five most heinous crimes, outcasts, the underprivileged: all are utterly the substance of existence and nothing other than total bliss."
The Supreme Source - The Kunjed Gyalpo
The Fundamental Tantra of Dzogchen Semde

Meme is shortened from memema, which, Greg you can confirm, connotes imitation, as in the word, mime and mimicry.

The oral tradition in Buddhism, particularly when we get into esoteric transmissions and guru yoga in the Tibetan context all relates to this copying and perpetuating of awakening.

I think the most meme like Buddhist memes would be things like Dharani, Mantra, and other chants.

Yes, to imitate or to copy.
