If you’ve ever been referred to as a “BLANK Adult”, then buddy, do I have some bad news for ya… it ain’t a compliment.
Whether you’re a LEGO Adult, Star Wars Adult, Disneyworld Adult, or perhaps the worst of them all, an Autograph Adult, the implication is that you’re a grown-up person whose into a specific hobby that’s largely meant for children, and that is, to put it bluntly, less than ideal. And this is coming from a guy who has made a career out of writing about Marvel movies and Batman.
Case in point? This Autography Adult — decked out in both a hat and a jersey, which we refer to in the soccer world as being a “full kit wanker” — attending the 2022 MLB All-Star Game in Los Angeles, who was caught on camera in crysal clear 4K jousting for position with a teenager about 30-40 years his junior in what has to be one of the saddest videos to hit the internet in 2022.

Naturally, given the extremely cringe-worthy nature of the video, baseball fans absolutely torched this uncomfortably over-eager grown man on social media:

Imagine being this guy’s wife and seeing this video go viral. Or, perhaps even worse, this guy’s son, who would likely be a similar age to this Dodgers-shirt-wearing teen, if not a bit older.
