    Wow, Kearney kinda looks like that State Farm insurance guy here. Always loved that bit he says too.

    “Charles Norwood” is perfect. Bill and Josh were the best at fake names.

    Why would Kearney want to use a fake ID to purchase booze? He’s 23.

      The writers really couldn’t decide whether Kearney was a teenager stuck in elementary school or a 20-30 year old stuck in elementary school. I think they were leaning towards the latter, but then you have curveballs like this.

        Plus, I don’t think Kearney is the type to use a legal ID to get booze. You have to remember that everyone on the show — adults, especially– are either moronic or selfish jerks. Heck, Homer himself is both.

        Well, I was mainly insinuating that ZS went haywire inconsistent on its characters. Initially Kearney was thought as a teenage guy, just the same as Flanders was never thought to be 60. Then I guess they ran out of ideas and first dumped Flanders (but that was at least decently plausible), and then, in the Jean years, came up with Kearney being 23. It first came off as a joke though. But since he’s just a filler with nothing meaningful anymore, it doesn’t even matter. I’m accustomed to thinking he’s still a teenager.

    …And soon after this, they would start making Kearney weird by having him be old enough to see the Bicentennial masts lifting the nation’s spirits after Watergate (probably where the joke should’ve ended), old enough to be fathering a kid (!) and having a divorce (!!), and then having him be old enough to go to non-juvie jail.

    So yeah, if he’s old enough to do all those things, he’s probably old enough to buy a beer. Probably the beginning of those running gags that in the long run did more harm to the show than helped it.

      Not to mention that he could easily enough drop out of school by this time, too.

    I assume Kearny was either stoned, playing a prank on a bet or this is actually a flashback to when Kearny was between 17-20 years of age.

    Yes, early on Kearney was definitely suppose to be a teenager. 23 year old Kearney always seemed to have been something Mike Scully cooked up
