Memes & Themes …

Meme – A meme is essentially a “unit of culture”—an idea, belief, pattern of behaviour, etc. which is “hosted” in one or more individual minds, and which can reproduce itself from mind to mind.

Memeticist(1) is one who studies memes and/or their transmission/replication/mutation (2) is one who propagates a meme or a group of memes via various cultural channels of communication, including speech or even mime. See Semiotics/Semiotician.
