Caesar's Bath Meme (3)

All Too Flat is a blog written by the same guy who wrote a blog which is titled The Outbreak. The Caesar's Bath Meme is originally posted as such on All Too Flat, as follows:

Back to The Outbreak, I started a meme over there that never really went anywhere, so I'm bringing it back here and forcing it down people's throats until they swallow it.

Behold, the Caesar's
Bath meme! List five things that people in your circle of friends or peer group are wild about, but you can't really understand the fuss over. To use the words of Caesar (from History of the World Part I), "Nice. Nice. Not thrilling...but nice."

1. The Simpsons
2. Coffee
3. The
Arcade Fire
4. Darwyn Cooke's DC: The New Frontier as representative of Everything Superhero Comics Should Be
5. The Incredibles

Since Ian already did it, bless 'im, I'm assigning this one out to Jim, Jim, and Alan, because I have no idea how or if they'll respond. I'll also kick it over to The Missus, if she'll have it. But don't forget: Anyone can pick this up and run with it. Try it, you'll like it!

I find it supremely ironic that the Caesar's Blog Meme finds its origins in a blog titled "The Outbreak". It has certainly spread like a contagion through a variety of social circles. The people in All Too Flat's social circle may be described as graphic novel afficionadoes and gamers (people who like comic books, anime, and video games). Further along, it found its way into a circle of politicoes, people who like to rant about the government or current events. Then it found its way into something like sorority girls before finding its way into the Catholic blogosphere. And even then, it took awhile before it found me.

Shameless plug. I've started a blog specifically for Caeasar's meme. It's ceasarmeme.blogspot.com I hope to see people there.
