The children of the future might have a wildly skewed version of history, thanks to a meme making the rounds on Twitter. 

The meme has Twitter users posting a completely random, unrelated photo with a historical figure’s name. Whether a founding father or an iconic pop star, people are comparing photos of Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie to Abraham Lincoln and the terrifying Chuck E Cheese animatronic band to Brockhampton. Twitter users are captioning the tweets with “Gonna tell my kids this was” and adding a historical figure. 

Here are a handful of questionable history lessons.

And hey, it’s safe to say that in a few decades, we might actually have a former scene kid as president.
