My comment is that I was struck with the timeliness of it, as
in the last few weeks I've noticed it appearing with great
frequency in a few online fora I read. This is likely some
artifact (i.e. that I never noticed it before but it's been
there all along), but my immediate reaction was "Why is it
always that within seconds of some meme reaching my brain I
discover that Ben's already written about it?"
