    although i do understand the use and meaning, I'd like to find out about the etymology behind the phrase "Fangs for the memory".

    Where did you see this phrase?

    It sounds like a play on "thanks for the memory."

    Was in something to do with vampires? If so, it's a weak play on words.

    Re: Fangs for the memory

    It is a play on words. I can't tell you where it came from but it is indeed a pun that's usually uttered by someone playing a vampire and it's a play on "Thanks for the memory/memories".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
