A short presentation comparing Chinese and Western memes I did as part of a chinese speech contest.
In the early internet days, people often made compilations of jokes in text form in order to share them online. Nowadays, jokes are packaged and retold in meme form. But what about the reverse process? What about memes that originate online and then migrate outwards? In order to better understand the inner workings of visual humor, I decided to do some investigation, starting with puns.
