A meme ... is a postulated unit or element of cultural ideas, symbols or practices that gets transmitted from one mind to another through speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena. ... they act as cultural analogues to genes, in that they self-replicate and respond to selective pressures
Dear Richard Dawkins
Big fan here. This is just to let you know you're pronouncing "meme" incorrectly. Maybe others have just been too polite to point this out to you, out of deference to your education and the fact that you invented the word, but as you've always advocated the truth above all us, I think it would be a disservice to the truth - and to you - to let it slide.
It's pronounced "may-may". Please make a note of it, and keep up the good work.
Yours in Christ,
