Meme- 150 Things

I was catching up with my Google reader today (it is seriously out of control from being ignored for 3 days). Anyway I saw this list on a post from DMB Does Not Stand For Dave Matthews Band! and since it is a lazy rainy Friday and I am tired (and you know I love lists!), I am using this for inspiration today. I have no idea what a Meme is. It is just some fancy word used in the blogging world I guess. Can someone tell me what it means because seriously I am too lazy to go look it up?
