    Not exactly a meme but this reaction gif is perfect for Trovatore:

    Speaking of Trovatore:

    When people started using the word "meme," I didn't know what they were talking about. I looked up "meme" and felt reasonably au courant. Now I'm confused again. I don't know what this thread is about. Don't tell me. I can force myself to be au courant only so many times before I forget my own name.

    When in the current Met staging of Ballo Renato walks up to Gustavo in plain view of everyone with a kitchen knife he isn't even trying to hide:

    And here I thought a meme was one of those people who wear striped shirts and always look like they’re standing behind an invisible window.

    Somebody should create a meme to express this concept. It should include one of the golden age singers Woodduck adores, I suggest Flagstad as Brunhilde coupled with an image from a regie staging of the Ring. The caption would be: "I don't know what this production is about. Don't tell me. I can force myself to be au courant only so many times before I forget my own name."

    Is there an adjective related to meme that describes something that is similar to a meme but not quite?

    Memey?

    Thanks for all the help. I still don't know what this is all about. Ignorance can be bliss.
