The Rock

The Rock took to social media (Instagram) for TBT (Throwback Thursday) to show the world a very funny picture, and let everyone know that he “kicked puberty’s ass.” I’m sure The Rock can kick whatever kind of ass he wants to, actually.

Here, we get a picture of him looking like he’s about 37 and divorced, when he was actually only 16 years old. He’s got a sweet porn ‘stache, which he mentions, and in the text, he talks about his childhood, and how hard it was being a teenager and bouncing from school to school due to disciplinary issues.

Here’s the pic:

#TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil’ trouble with the law.. McKinley HS (Honolulu, HI), Glencliff HS (Nashville, TN), McGavock HS (Nashville, TN), Freedom HS (Bethlehem, PA). I was also 6’4 225lbs, rockin’ a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn ‘stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin’ out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin’ cars from crackheads. Yup, one of the many reasons why I’m a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty’s ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache

Magnificent, right? It’s a pretty crazy pic, but I would never say that to his face. Glad he came out of those rough high school years with a good head on his shoulders.
