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 ...
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.
