Am I really pissing you off? Great! That makes me very happy! It shows
that I know how to get into your mind. It was so easy. I am pushing
all kinds of buttons in your mind right even now. And why would I be pushing
your buttons? Because I am planting a meme in your mind. I've had your
attention, and during that brief interval, I've inserted a meme of my own
making into your mind.

Now for the real puzzle. If you were paying conscious attention to what I
have been saying all along, you would know what that meme is. Are you
aware of what that meme is? Or has it subltely infected you without you
even knowing what hit you?
