The meme has no meaning if it doesn't relate to the message of the original photograph.  The more general meaning is: children are innocent, yet by their innocence they always pay the price.  As it was with war, so it with Andrew's lascivious relations with children.

Eddie thought it had meaning with out the context of war. She just saw the Prince chasing a child, which is funny in a cringe-worthy kind of way. She didn't know who the children were in the photo, and I'm still betting the creator of the meme didn't either.  

You're just not wired right.

I think you're wrong. I think the creator chose the photograph precisely because the justaposition of wrongs created precisely the message s/he sought. There are very few accidents in the creative world.

Obviously, you're not familiar with creativity.

You don't know much about memes do you? I have created dozens.

I guess that makes me creative.

Haha...you are the paragon of inside-the-box thinking, so to use yourself as a model of originality is to choose a bad example. I'm afraid it takes more than that. But you’re on the right track.

Creativity takes the intentional agency of the person doing the creation. S/he selects items/concepts from the world and creates something that connects with the rest of the world.

You say: “I'm still betting the creator of the meme didn't [know the children in the photo] either”. If it isn’t meaningful to her/him, why select it? It’s much more difficult for a creator to have accidents in intentional selections of a creation…in this case, a meme. Is there even such a thing as negligent/intentional selection?

I'm not any track.

Except the "Quill is full of shit track" and that train is about 70 boxcars full of your shit. Cool
