Give me examples of ‘meta’ please. Ta.

Just read House of Leaves as a bedtime story

I can only talk about meta-gaming as it applies to penoid card games, I’m afraid. You won’t be able to get me to stop once I get started on that.

Hate the way all the galaxy brains always clamour for control metas when in reality they’re are just interminable boring slugfests

In ‘clever’ sitcoms like arrested development or community when eg. the characters are fans of a cult TV show that’s in danger of being cancelled.

DON’T GET HIM STARTED ON THAT
