One teen's funny tactic to try to buy alcohol

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

Teenagers may try to buy alcohol despite being underaged. They could get a fake ID -- or go to a store known not to check ID. One teen in particular, however, had a slightly different trick in mind.

Scottish comedy and parody site, The Glasgow Gospel, posted a photo of this teen on their Facebook page:

In an attempt to buy alcohol, he used someone else's ID -- his mom's, in fact. He also dressed up as her to complete the effect.
