Clarification

While I made the claims that Milhouse is not a meme, Milhouse is not a meme is a meme, and Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme, I am not obligated to prove any of those statements. I am only obligated to prove that Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme is not a meme. The burden of proof is shared.

1. Official Meme Sharing Sites Don't Recognize

"Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme" has no confirmation as a legitimate meme according to any of the top meme explanation websites. These websites include Know Your Meme[1], Meme Generator[2], and 4chan[3]. Without any highly recognized website declaring that Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme is a meme, there is no valid internet culture support for such a claim. Without internet culture support, it can't be a meme.

2. Common People Don't Recognize

Even compared to the few existing searches made for Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme, the interest in such a topic has most recently dropped to a practical zero.





The few people that ever showed interest in Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme have dropped off to nonexistence, while the query itself never beared enough proper popularity to become a meme in the first place. If a meme is defined as "an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture[4]," then that is a definition that "Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme" does not meet.

Conclusion

If neither the official meme recognition organizations nor the popular crowd recognize Milhouse is not a meme is a meme is a meme to be a meme, then by definition, it isn't a meme. No evidence can be valued above the denial of both the people and "the internet," thus my initial statement can never be fully refuted.

Under normal circumstances, I would begin by disregarding the forfeit and then explaining what my opponent has done wrong and then move on to cover the forfeit. In this instance, however, he hasn't done anything yet.

Before elaborating on my arguments, I will allow my opponent a chance to respond.
