Okay, ignore the babysitter nonsense and focus on the picture (replicated here if your clicking finger has cramped). If you check out young Marcus Rudd on the left you’ll notice he’s wearing a Leeory Jenkins T-shirt.

Apparently the picture was originally published on page two of a recent Daily Telegraph.

Who is this Leeroy Jenkins? From what we can gather, he’s one of the biggest WoW memes to grace the Internet.

First of all – props to you Marcus. I certainly don’t have the sack to wear anything even remotely that geeky outdoors, except for maybe corduroys. Secondly, does the lad play World of Warcraft? Fourteen is definitely the right age, and ten million or so players leaves plenty of opportunity as far as sheer numbers are concerned.

If you’re reading this Marcus, let us know your choice of MMO poison. Otherwise, bask in the holy light of your new-found semi-celebrity status.

  • When my friend and I created new characters on the Oceanic realm “Nagrand” around the time of the federal election, there was a character named Kevinrüdd who was in the guild. It created much controversy, annoyance and amusement (mostly annoyance).

    We joked that this character must’ve been his kid.

  • I think we should lobby Kevin Rudd’s Kid to get an R rating for video games in Australia. This guy could be our spokesperson. Also, to discuss the story from news.com.au a 14 yr old really doesn’t need a babysitter.

  • Give me the Leeroy Jenkins shirt over a pair of corduroys anyday 😛

    And yes, I agree a 14 yr old doesn’t need a babysitter.

  • You mean they have the Internet at the lodge now and WoW! Teenagers Agggggh! I can see a very geeky senates estimates committee coming.

  • Ever since Jay-Jays released the “oldskool” range, I’ve seen plenty of people wearing Sonic or 1-up tees.
