A meme in the context of the IndieWeb is a special photo (or photo reply) post consisting of a funny or provocative image with a brief text note overlaid on top of it, usually in all capitals white text outlined in black, similar to a single-pane comic, yet with text that reads like prose rather than a caption.
In general a meme is an idea that propagates through minds by replication (the idea itself encourages those understanding it to propagate it to others).
