From The Boar:

Mike Godwin first coined the ‘internet meme’ in 1994 to characterise the rapid spread of ideas online. He noticed unpopular posters on online forums were often described as “Nazi’s” or “Like Hitler”, and the longer an online discussion went on the higher chance there was of a Nazi-comparison meme being made. Today, memes can literally refer to anything, from Grumpy Cat to How Italians Do Things and even Here Comes Dat Boi.
