What is the "gonna tell my kids" meme and how does it work though? Essentially, it's all based around you telling your future children history as you see fit. In other words, you can make things up. For example, you could say: "gonna tell my kids this was the 45th president of the US" alongside a photograph of Hilary Clinton. It's all about you a) having a laugh or b) just manifesting something you wish was true into existence.

As it stands, people have brought everyone from Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello to Steve Jobs and Panic! At The Disco into the meme. No-one is safe but they all have one thing in common: they're hilarious. With that in mind, we've gathered all of the funniest ones together in one place for you to enjoy. It's time to relearn everything you thought you already knew about history from the perspective of the internet.
