Language/golf meme

Just in case anyone's interested, there's a bit of a meme going around, started by LiveJournal founder Brad Fitzpatrick, with different language solutions to the problem "find names which are anagrams of each other".

The raw material he used was this list from the US Census.

Perl is coming out well, I feel.

Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
kids today don't know what line-noise IS ...

    which part is meme
      I thought a meme was a "fad" or "craze" so it would be the actual game of finding names which are anagrams of each other.
