The History of Dank Memes
by Dirty Dan
Dank -
means "Very potent marijuana" or "Incredibly good, awesome"
Meme -
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.
The word meme originated with Richard Dawkins' 1976 book The Selfish Gene. Dawkins cites as inspiration the work of geneticist L. L. Cavalli-Sforza, anthropologist F. T. Cloak [16] and ethologist J. M. Cullen.[17]
From Middle English danke, first recorded circa 1310 (as verb; circa 1410 as noun), probably from North Germanic, related to Swedish dank.
