In an undercover operation by Trading Standards, an underage boy successfully purchased alcohol in 6 different stores using a fake ID with a photograph of Bobby Hill.

UK Teen Uses Fake ID to Buy Alcohol at Six Different Stores

Wow, talk about not giving a fuck. A teen used a fake ID displaying a picture of “King of the Hill’s” Bobby Hill—yes, a cartoon character—to buy beer from six stores in Nottinghamshire. The ID card also clearly stated that the kid was 17. During this undercover operation, over half of the 22 stores tested by Nottinghamshire’s County Council either gave the teen liquor without asking for ID or accepted the fake ID despite the fact that it was clearly fake.

For the record, the kid is actually 18, not that it matters.
