Meme Detection is a very important skill (rather, a scarce talent) to have on the interwebz. Without it, almost all of today's rampant memes wouldn't have seen the light, and most likely would've drowned in the vast, bottomless sea of internet obscurity.

A person enjoying such a skill can detect lulz in otherwise obscure layers of media, facial expressions or even art. By vigorously wading through normal-looking graphics posted on a daily basis on blogs, forums, news articles or even imageboards, one can occasionally stumble on some potentially lulzy stills requiring little to no modification to emphasize.
