    Would any of the other readers here get a “Mario Kart” reference?

      It’s a-me, Mario!

      Yes, some of us have kids and understand this (shamefully).

        Some of us are only 24… or maybe that’s just me.

        I’m-a Waario, I’m-a gonna win!

        Always was my favorite character to use in Kart.
        Also, this picture is epic.

    I think he looks like Gallagher, too.

      That’s a good call! How many of the kids get the Gallagher reference? Is Maddon sitting on a watermelon by chance?

      …or even a young Sonny Bono. Maybe Cher took the picture.
