  2. Memes are rapidly spreading socially shared thoughts, experiences, ideas etc. One type of meme is the "can haz cheezeburger" words on images, but memes have been video clips (e.g. the dancing baby [1], which is considered by many people as the very first meme), songs (e.g. Ylvis' "What Does the Fox Say?"[2]), pranks[3], sayings ("Honey badger don't care. Honey badger don't give a s…"[4]), etc.

    And while many recent gifs are animated, they don't have to be. gif is simply a digital standard for images, which can include animated images.
