Nice buns, Burger Boy!
Blog Guy, I’m a 16-year-old boy and I’m very sensitive about my looks.
The kids at school say I look like a hamburger! They taunt me, calling me “Burger Boy” and “Big Mac.” What can I do?
Kids can be so cruel. First, let me say that I don’t see it at all. You look like a regular kid to me. But I did show your photo to my picture editor, who said, “Sweet Jesus! Look at the Whopper where that poor kid’s head should be!”
So if it will help your self-esteem, let’s do a makeover. A brightly-colored shirt, especially one with blue stripes, will help de-emphasize your perceived burgerishness.
You try that out, and it will change your life. Tomorrow, you can go to school with relish. Oops, sorry.
