Hello,

I'm... rather surprised by Perelandra's latest additions in Memetic Mutation. Is there a source or something showing that the "Je suis monté" sentence became a meme? Same for the "Pardon..." which sounds more like a mean jab directed at french players that an actual meme (I could write the same entry by replacing it with "Sorry...", it wouldn't make it true or a meme). In short: are those sentence becoming memes factually correct? If no, I think they should be removed.

I'll be damned. The "Je suis monté" does seem to have reached a memetic status (albeit quite small from what I can see - also, may be related to "Je suis Charlie"). There is definitly less evidence regarding "Pardon..." though.

The part about Woolseyism is false. Japanese versions also call the mosters by their designated names (most of the time on the materials, but they also did that for mission names/descriptions) instead of just stating their name as "xxx subspecies". For example, Ivory Lagiacrus (as raised in the YMMV page) is literally known as "White Lagiacrus" in Japan.
