Passport Blurred

When traveling abroad, no matter where you’re going it’s a good idea to take a few extra precautions. You never know when your destination will present the danger of finding yourself in the middle of a gang fight, falling out of the restaurant or, well, being in North Korea.

There’s one more source of danger you may not have considered: your beloved toddler. A 42-year-old resident of Shenyang, China was enjoying a visit to South Korea recently when his four-year-old son struck, making further travel all the more difficult.

▼ Could this be Junior’s passive-aggressive way of telling Dad he needs more hair and friends?

The picture was posted to a Weibo page by the passport’s owner with laments about how he would get ever home. As can be expected, internet users responded with the good-natured altruism they’re known for.

“What a masterpiece!”

“The painter has all the talent of Picasso.”

“Oh, I feel so bad for the father, I can’t look!”

“I laughed so hard I almost fainted.”

Well done, internet! Problem solved! There were thousands of responses, many of them just as helpful. You may be wondering if our protagonist ever got home again, but don’t be too concerned yet.

Did you notice how our little prodigy was able to draw off the edge of the passport and onto blank space? Check out the right side.

▼ Dum dum DUUUUM!

Passport Enlarged

You can also see that the passport belongs to someone who was born on January 22, 1972, but the Weibo user who posted this picture claims he was born on December 23, 1983. Blog registration is hardly proof of anything, but it does seem strange, and makes us wonder whether this is just a(n amusing) fake.

The strokes also seem a little too uniform to have been done with a pen, especially considering that most passports have a waterproof  photo page. Could the graffiti have possibly been added in MS Paint?

The figure in the middle seems very familiar to me. I’m pretty sure something very similar was repeatedly scrawled on all the doors in my college dorm.

▼ In other words:

Trollface Passport

This was all incredibly profound. I just have one final question: did the commenters realize it was probably (pointlessly) fake and decide to troll a troll or were they just being genuinely awful on the internet? Let us know in the comments—but please, no more layers of trolling!
