For those who have never seen or heard of an internet meme, it’s basically a piece of media that spreads, often as mockery or for humorous purposes, and takes the form of an image, GIF or video. They can be a word or phrase, sometimes including intentional misspellings (such as lolcats) or corrupted grammar (such as in doge, all your base are belong to us, etc.).
