There are many things I fail to understand about modern life.
We know that modern Yoof is an entirely different species from a couple of generations ago, even to the point of having their own breeds – Homo Millennial, Homo Snowflake or even Homo Bovidae [look it up].
One of the things that regularly crops up is this business of “viral”. What the fuck is that? Someone sticks a photograph or a video on the Interwebs and apparently “going viral” is the desired aim, but what is it?
I have put a few videos up in my time. Some of them have actually had more than a couple of views. and one in particular has managed to accumulate nearly 13,500 views over the years it has been there, but is this viral? Is there a target that one has to achieve?
Now I couldn’t give a flying shite if I have been sitting on a “viral video” all these years without even knowing it, but others seem to lay great store by it.
So what exactly does “viral” mean?
