Maybe people aren't meming for the up votes. Maybe they are doing it for the fun of it. But also, again, what lame is, is a subjective opinion. You may think something is lame, another user may think it's great. There such a huge variety of ages and backgrounds in here. I expect a huge variety of memes. My point in this meme is, if someone is going to complain about originality and humor, they may want to make sure their memes are original and funny. Otherwise, it's just the pot calling the kettle black.
