Default Sweatbox Your Brain For Science!!! (and prizes)   #1  
============
HOW IT WORKS
============

This will cover a range of topics including, but not limited to: memes, current events, comic books, movies, series, games (console, tabletop, pc), past events, site items, science, riddles, and cartoons.
Every question will be worth a certain amount of points, which can be redeemed for currency for instant gratification, or saved up to snag something from the prize pool.
Each day a question goes unanswered, the more points it'll be worth--but also the more likely it'll be that someone else will give it a go.
You may answer an unlimited amount of questions, but keep in mind only the first correct answer will receive points. However, if you can give a convincing explanation to support your answer, you may also gain points, even if it wasn't the one I was looking for.

Please post your answers in the format below, one question per post (you may ignore the triple post rule for this thread, if you're answering trivia questions):
Quote:

further information (if required; optional)

I mean, it does sound the same. XD
And Beetlejuice was, in fact, a cartoon before it was done as a movie.

I never actually got to watch it (the cartoon) when I was younger, but there were 2 episodes in the bonus features on my dvd copy of the movie.

How did 'memes' get their name?
IT'S FROM ANCIENT GREEK OMG CAN'T BELIEVE MY KNOWLEDGE IS USEFUL
*coughs* The term was first used by Dawkins to signify what he tried to explain as the 'cultural gene' something that self-replicated equal but different (look at me trying to explain things sleepy). It comes from the ancient greek μιμεῖσθαι, to imitate. That word is also root for other English words like mimic and mime.

What was the 'in front of my salad??' meme originally referring to?
It's from a porn movie, two guys start getting at it in the kitchen in front of a girl, who gets outraged and says 'c'mon guys, right now? In front of my salad?'
