It uses logical fallacies the same way Futurama does, if that's any help. And if that doesn't help, it means that it uses them in a self-aware manner. For example, a certain part of the story seems to be completely based off of Futurama's episode "Roswell that Ends Well" where time travel paradox is used humorously to create a situation where Fry becomes his own grandfather. This isn't just a joke, though, because that situation later has actual ramifications for several episodes.

By "memes" I mean, that style of ironic thinking that produces memes.
The metanarration is ok at best, but occurs far enough in the story that you are already invested and roll with it.

Also, I ninja'd you.
