Yes, I get that sealioning has a meaning now and it's derived from the cartoon. However, I can't let a negation of Death Of The Author slip by. The meaning the word has is due to common usage, not Malki telling us what his cartoon means. Malki gets to have an opinion on that, but it isn't the final one, any more than Homer gets to have the last word on why Odysseus was like that.
