# An Emacs Meme Generator

I got an idea tonight: Emacs must have a meme generator.  Using a web browser seems so jejune.

After pondering a few minutes and then typing a few hours, here it is.  And here’s how it looks in action:

It basically just manipulates an SVG image, so it’s less work than you’d expect.

If you want to play around with it, you need a very fresh Emacs trunk; see this for easy installation instructions.  You also need the Impact font from the Microsoft font collection; in Debian it’s installed by saying

`apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer`

Uhm…  I think that’s basically it.

I know every one calls these things “memes”, but they’re actually called “image macros”, which is just a subset of internet memes. /pedantic
