Post 3 (Are Memes Art?)

There are clearly so many different opinions on the matter of, are memes art. I feel as though memes are absolutely art. When you google search the definition of art it is as follows: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Well, do memes not express imagination in the visual form? Do memes not have aesthetic appeal and convey emotions, most often humor? The answer to these questions can be different for different people, but memes certainly do all of those things for me.
