Forget Receipt Porn On Rich Kids Of Instagram, Norwegian Teen Tattoos McDonald’s Receipt On His Arm.

CNN reports that a Norwegian teen tattooed a receipt from McDonald’s on his arm. Apparently this was part of a challenge by his friends, in which he got to choose between a McDonald’s receipt and a Barbie doll tattoo, because he was “too good with the ladies.”

The tattoo parlor has offered to tattoo their receipt on him, too. We wonder if he used his charm on ladies working there to get offered that.

Three Observations About This Story

1. Good luck getting a job at Burger King, now! We’re not saying that this teen can’t get an education and get any job he wants. But he is potentially ruling out a lot of jobs like: working at competing restaurants; counseling bankrupt people with a phobia of bills and receipts; and working at Sleeveless Joe’s Arm Modeling Agency.  Oh, we might add any place that requires negotiation skills, since McDonald’s says in the report the kid did this for free, and he could have totally got paid something for all of the free advertising.

2. Hey, it’s tax season, so we hope you don’t have to write off that receipt, because it won’t be fun affixing your arm to tax forms. And even less fun for all involved if you tattoo the entire return on your body and get audited.

3. And all along dumb rich kids have been wasting tens of thousands of dollars to get attention taking pictures of fancy receipts, submitted to the Tumblr site the Rich Kids of Instagram.  This kid just got international media attention for the price of a tattoo and McDonald’s meal, so maybe he’s smarter than his media receipt-bragging counterparts! We take back our negotiating skill comments – time for the Norwegian teen to negotiate a reality show for the rich kids, presuming they don’t already have one.*

*We’d wager they do. Maybe you’ll have to negotiate the Norwegian rights.

  1. I don’t get it – did his friends think the tattoo would make him less popular?
