Memes and Trolling

Ever wondered about Internet Memes??  There was a great item in the today about the origins of 10 of the best internet memes.
5. The O Rly? Owl: A photograph of a snowy owl with an amusing facial expression was taken by photographer John White in 2001, before being snatched and superimposed with "O Rly?", thus creating a meme commonly posted on forums as a response to a debatable statement.
9. Futurama Fry: In season two, episode 11 of cartoon Futurama, the main character Fry is seen to make a suspicious face. This is now a meme, with text superimposed on to the still image, generally saying something along the lines of, "Not sure if trolling ... or just stupid".
