Ahhhhh the internet’s answer to quick wit and soapbox gesture…”The MEME”!!  A meme is defined as:  “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.” ~So whenever you have a huge iconic example, like ROCKY, the memes come storming out! Let’s examine a few… MEME-1 Burt Young, Rocky’s PAULIE,  certainly adds both humor and emotion to the Rocky series. When the cyber world creates these memes featuring our dear Uncle Paulie we come across a wide range of material. Some people simply snag a picture of Paulie, Rocky, Mickey etc and slap a “Happy Birthday” on the pic and send it to their favorite uncle…some times the meme can be pertinent to what is happening in society at that given moment…and sometimes, it just plain silly… rocky-burt-palace
