Most of us are 100% flesh-and-blood humans, but now and then one of us achieves transcendence and blossoms into a meme. I am curious if anyone has made it halfway there but stopped short of losing their digital identity entirely. Rick Astley comes to mind, but I don’t think Rickrolling really accounts for 50% of our understanding of him…yet. It may be that the dumb little URL spoofing craze eventually overtakes or balances out his lengthy musical career, but is there anyone we can say┬áis equally mixed between meme and human right now?

Please discuss. Of course, it’s not quantifiable, so we’ll never reach a satisfying resolution–but isn’t it nice to dispense with that possibility up front?
