Parents can be pretty clueless when it comes to the internet, depending on their age.

Maybe they still send chain email forwards to all their friends. Maybe they copy and paste their friends’ status on Facebook as part of some movement. Maybe they don’t really understand this whole TikTok business (let alone how to spell it!).

But at least one dad seems to be super hip to the times, particularly when it comes to memes.

He absolutely schooled his daughter in a recent string of text messages, which he proudly posted on Imgur for the world to see.

It starts here, with a mundane text about lunch:

Though the daughter thinks she knows best here, the dad actually has the upper hand and lays down some serious knowledge on her:

And she could not have seen this one coming at all:

This just gets funnier and funnier as it goes along! What a cool dad!

Oh wow, he even got the last word there with one final burn. Jokes on you, child! Your dad seems to know way, way more about internet culture than you do. You’ve got some real catching up to do — and fast. Time to redeem yourself by making some viral TikTok videos or something.

What’s your favorite way to rile up your children? And kids, what do your parents do that really grinds your gears?

We’d love to hear your stories and get a good laugh out of them!
