I believe that memes are "black swan" instances. There's no way to predict what would make something a memorable meme, because this depends on so many random factors, that it's practically impossible to see it coming. That of course, is a very ignorant and comforting thing to say. Memes are a very exciting subject and I might do a research on it. If I ever do, I'll make sure to post the results here.
I think it is possible to construct a meme, it just requires genius. Come on, this forum is full of geniuses. Someone get off their ass.
There's the bob-takeover-youtube meme, and that was so obviously contrived.
