Right on. Now, using this analogy to plan strategy, since lawyers could be
considered to be the nervous cells of the memetic organism, we need to focus our
memetic attacks on lawyers (and, given the already high level of memes that attack
lawyers, they seem to be rather rugged buggers). How about:

1) studies showing the lower life expectancy of lawyers over other similarly
educated professionals.
2) studies of the level of law breaking amongst lawyers
2.5) studies of lower sexual prowess among lawyers....
3) a political action group called: "Hang the Lawyers" that seeks to ban lawyers
from holding political office.
