Well, this is awkward. Earlier today, Joel Warner wrote a post about the stupidity of blogs about memes, and now here we are with a stupid blog about memes. But by gum, it's Wednesday, and Wednesday is the day we bring you the best of our weird internetz world in a collection of loosely related items on whatever subject we happen to come up with -- and we're not going to let Joel Warner stop us.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
