House Speaker Paul Ryan blessed us with the perfect meme when he wheeled out a PowerPoint presentation on his healthcare plan Thursday.
In the image, Ryan looks like your average, dorky high school math teacher — the kind who you opt to make fun of instead of listening to his lecture.
An image of Ryan giving his presentation is now sweeping the internet at your new favorite meme. People are filling in his PowerPoint screen with whatever the heck they want:

The only real lesson learned here is that you never want to give Twitter users a blank canvas to draw on. How did Ryan not see this coming?!
However, the one thing you may WANT to pay attention to during this math lesson? The amount of millions that it can possibly cost Americans in healthcare. For that reason alone, you may just want to take notes rather than nap.
