Family traditions can take many forms, from recipes passed down over generations to holiday and birthday celebration with a personal twist. One Twitter user @JonoZalay shared his unique family tradition— trolling the DMV.
We'll let him tell it.
Recently moved back to California and had to get a new drivers license. This is my story (thread)...— Jono Zalay (@JonoZalay) January 10, 2018
Looks like a pretty normal guy, but wait for the transformation.
Some serious effort goes into this prank.
He's not done yet. @JonoZalay is in this for the long game.
Almost there, just a few final touches and accessories.
He went on to describe his experience while at the DMV.
Unfortunately when taking the official photo the picture person doesn't let me snarl my lip. But I'm snarling them with my eyes.— Jono Zalay (@JonoZalay) January 10, 2018
Also- CURVEBALL! I have to take a written driving test! Did u know you're not allowed to park in front of your own driveway? But I said u could because FUCK THE GOVERNMENT and I barely passed.— Jono Zalay (@JonoZalay) January 10, 2018
Anyway. ID gets mailed in 2 weeks but for the next couple months my hair is gonna be a little extra so be cool about it.— Jono Zalay (@JonoZalay) January 10, 2018
To sum up—
To his credit, Jono Zalay acknowledges that systematic white privilege plays a part in being allowed to play this prank on the government.
Also I acknowledge this is only something a white guy can do. I think that is tragic and want every person regardless of race, religion, or gender to have this frivolous of a relationship with people who check their IDs.— Jono Zalay (@JonoZalay) January 10, 2018
Twitter was applauding this creative prank.
This is a family tradition we can get behind.
