Jinkies! It’s The Mystery Machine by Chad Horwedel on Flickr

Zoinks, looks like Scooby Doo was real life after all.

When I was little, I thought that when you became a teenager you were given a van and either an English Sheepdog or a Great Dane, and you and your friends (who may or have been in a pop band) drove around the country solving mysteries. I also thought that A&W carded you when you ordered a teenburger. Then I grew up.

Growing up sucks, kittens. Growing. Up. Sucks.
