You're just more sensible and mature...

With a superior taste in humor.


Guys! Guys. Look, it says "penis."


But that doesn't mean you're not just as good -- nay, better -- at doing stuff you loved as a kid.


We can only aspire to be as totally consumed by joy as this guy. One day.


You've just got to harness your creativity.

Especially when your day-to-day gets boring.


Above all, remember that the world is still chock-full of wonders you've yet to explore.
