Parents 25, kids 0. The old folks have dominated this texting game.

That's the official score after scrolling through the gallery below, documenting some of the best exchanges between mothers and fathers and their offspring.

Exchanges via text message, that is, a platform where you'd think the younger generation would have an inherent edge, given their savviness with technology.

You would think. But this slideshow tells another story entirely ...

What's Up? What Are You Doing?
Dad's responses to each of his son's questions? Very literal. And hilarious.

To be fair, this is not a representative sampling of the public at large.

There are enough legendarily epic mom texting fails to fill a separate gallery, and we have done so more than once at the expense of our parental units.

Those are as ineptly funny as you'd expect them to be.

Still, you gotta give it up for mom and dad and their ability to dish it right back to their children, be it in the form of memes, emojis or tried and true sarcasm.

Brutal honesty, too, always has a way of resonating.

Pretty much nothing is worse in the entire world than sending a text message to someone and getting left hanging for hours, or worse yet, straight up ignored.

Fortunately, you can still rally and make lemonade out of virtual lemons, so to speak.

Two Years Ago!
That's a long time to leave someone hanging ... or keep the number and conversation of someone who left you hanging.

One of the first indicators of rejection is people not texting back. Sure, maybe their phones died or were left in another room, or they had to physically turn them off.

Probably not, though. We're not trying to hurt your feelings, just level with you here.

People are attached to phones as closely as they are to their partners or children. Chances are pretty good that a late (or no) response is deliberate.

We hate to be the one to break it to you, but your texts are largely being viewed as an annoyance that can and should be ignored. So what are you going to do?

Scroll through the gallery above for some terrific ways of handling the situation. Turn the tables on the person with wit, mind games and possible bitterness.

You'll be glad you did. And you'll have the last word ... because they don't write back.

If you've ever seen Saturday Night Live's Nasim Pedrad impersonate Kim Kardashian then you know that she not only perfectly mimics Kim's nasal, valley girl voice, she also captures the airheaded essence that we've all come to know and unsuccessfully try to ignore over the years.

But for as much time as she spends in front of cameras, Kim is apparently oblivious to her own walk and talk.

When Kim crossed paths with Pedrad before she left the SNL cast earlier this year, Mrs. West apparently had just one question - "I'm not really like that, am I?!"

Even though anyone who's ever seen the Kim Kardashian sex tape can close their eyes and hear Kim's shrill, ear-piercing squeals of pleasure, Nasim assured her that, no, the voice was just exaggerated for the sake of comedy.

Awfully nice of her, but come on! If no one ever says anything she's just gonna go right on talking like that!

Julianna Margulies is known for many things:

For having a hot husband. For having had fake sex with George Clooney on TV. For winning an Emmy Award this year and truly blowing away viewers who watch The Good Wife online with her weekly performance.

But the star actress is not typically known for her comedic chops. Until now, that is.

In an amazing Tonight Show segment on Tuesday titled “Musical Morning Announcements,” Margulies teamed with Jimmy Fallon to portray a high school principal and assistant principal who use pop songs to clue students in to upcoming events.

From their own unique versions of “Turn Down For What” to “Fancy” to “Shake It Off," Margulies and Fallon put a hysterical spin on this summer's classic songs.

As second-largest discount retailer in the United States, and more than a century of business under its belt, Target is by all accounts winning at business and life.

Still, sometimes things slip through the cracks at some of its 1,797 stores, and the marketing campaigns that support them. And when they do, the results are amazing.

Check out 17 of Target's most hilariously epic fails below:

Tasty Diapers
Mmm. So real. So delish.

Like every other big name company, Target has fallen victim to some unintentionally hysterical Photoshop fails over the years. That's hardly a surprise.

It's the in-store signage that really slays us here, though.

From its inability to understand what "clearance" means to some seriously head-scratching promotional ideas, these are "WTH" moments to a T.

Did you know that this weekend marked the 200th anniversary of the writing of The Star-Spangled Banner?

Yes? Because you've seen that milestone mentioned a few times on television? Okay, fair enough.

But riddle us this: Do you know the words to the The Star-Spangled Banner? If so, you are way ahead of the people Jimmy Kimmel Live quizzed on the streets of Los Angeles last night...

In other recent Jimmy Kimmel Live segments, the comedian mocked New York Fashion Week attendees and had NFL stars read mean Tweets about themselves.

Some felines earned the name Hero Cat by scaring away an angry dog and saving the life of a little boy.

Others are scared of a lemon.

The following video was released in 2012, but then rediscovered recently by Tastefully Offensive. It features a very curious cat poking, prodding and swatting at a sliced lemon, clearly confounded by this piece of fruit.

The footage runs for over three-and-a-half minutes, but it's time-lapsed, which means the cat could have been doing battle with the lemon for hours and hours. Which is totally hilarious to imagine.

Watch them go at it here:

Bill Murray. Those two words mean many things to many people. To those of us of a certain age they conjure images of Carl Spackler and Dr. Peter Venkman.

But to a whole new generation of young people, they bring to mind the brilliant one-man meme-generator who randomly blesses the Internet with inexplicable gems like the one below:

Yes, that's Bill Murray dancing to Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What?" and all we can really say about it is, you're welcome, Internet.

Okay, we can also say we wish it was a better quality video, but it in a way, it's fitting that Murray was recorded with the sort of grainy shaky cam usually reserved for mythical creatures like the Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, and Paris Hilton's vagina.

Normally, such crappy footage would make us suspicious, but the comedy legend has been on a surprise party-cameo roll lately:

Think Peekaboo is just a harmless game sometimes played between a cat and its owner?

THINK AGAIN!

In the following video, a father plays a harmless and fun edition of this classic game with his young daughter. He then gets up for a few minutes to shave his gigantic beard and when he returns...

... AHHHH! Who is that strange person?!? What has he done with Daddy?!?

It's safe to say the little girl doesn't take this smooth change very well. Watch and laugh hilariously at her tears now:

We assume she got over it eventually. And Mommy was probably happy that her husband more closely resembles a human being than a caveman.

Who says bears are so different from humans?

These animals may seem scary, but they get excited when they reach the green in golf, same as anyone else. They also like to Twerk.

And as a heat wave hits Southern California, with temperatures soaring into the triple digits, they look to cool off in the same way as their two-legged frenemies:

By taking a quick dip in the pool!

Watch this black bear chill out on the property of a home in Sierra Madre Sunday afternoon. Someone get that guy a drink with an umbrella in it!

Pool owners in the area should take note: It's not expected to get any cooler in The Golden State over the next few days.
