Parents—they just don’t understand, sometimes. Most millennials would be hard-pressed to explain memes to their legal guardians, but one Fort Lauderdale, Florida teen has the good fortune of her mom being a mean meme-eating machine.
When 19-year-old Taylor Hannon told her mom she was out with her friends, her mom asked if she’s be home for dinner.
Hannon broke it to her mom that, no, she wouldn’t be home in time. Instead of texting back a simple “OK :-(” Hannon’s mom did her one better.
Take note, boring parents: this is what Amy Poehler’s Mean Girls character should have meant when she said, “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom!”
Not only does Hannon’s mom know what the evil Kermit meme is, but she took her own pictures and STITCHED EVERYTHING TOGETHER. It’s more than just an ode to a meme—it’s a digitally handmade love letter to youths everywhere. And it’s proof that, yes, parents can be weirdly cool every now and again.
“My mom had just walked outside in the rain, and when she got back into her office with her black raincoat on, she was like, ‘Oh my god, I look like the Kermit meme,'” Hannon told BuzzFeed. “Anyone who knows my mom knows she does things like this all the time.”
Evidenced by the literally hundreds of thousands of people who have enjoyed Hannon’s mom’s memery, Hannon clearly has the coolest mom of all time.
Quick, somebody find the closest PTA meeting and get them to do the Mannequin Challenge—anything to keep this cool parent trend going.
