Summary "Memes and Internet satire are everywhere online. They come and go so quickly, it's hard to understand what they even mean. Readers take a closer look at this modern phenomenon in a thoughtful and accessible way. They will explore the early days of memes including where the name comes from and how they spread throughout the web. This book investigates the world of Internet satire including the rise of fake news and the trouble humor can cause when they go too far.
