It just so happens that this weekend I watched "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" - which is chock full of memorable skits and what these days might be called "memes".  One of those is the recurring theme of one character or another who receives a horrible mortal wound, only to pronounce "I'm not dead yet!" followed by "I think I'm getting better!"
