You know you've made it as a meme when someone put a giant mural up ...

John of The Zeray Gazette asks this interesting question: what causes an Internet meme? What gives some web sensation staying power?
What makes some video, idea, or motif a predominant meme? Why do people blog about bacon, zombies, and lolcats, but not so much about pork shoulder roast, mummies, and parakeets? Why does one guy mouthing the words to Numa Numa in front of his PC become famous, while almost all others who do likewise do not?
John went on to explain his theory, which includes penetrability (i.e. how a successful meme crosses niche web communities) and instantaneous comphrehensibility (how easily it can be grasped in under 10 seconds).
Actually, I can answer that question with one word: 4chan.
