Brilliant: What Life Is Like Now for the 30-Something Mutant Ninja Turtles

I was home for the Easter holiday like many of you, I’m sure, and I discovered that not only was my trusty old Nintendo Entertainment System in my bedroom closet in mint condition in its original box, but – drum roll, please – my mother had socked away my older siblings’ ATARI at some point and it was still in the basement. I can’t wait to try to plug it into my fairly recently cutting-edge then suddenly virtually obsolete giant TV with the 40 pound back full of tubes to see what happens in the name of 80’s/90’s nostalgia.

But speaking of the late 80’s/early 90’s … I came across another bit of nostalgia turned comedic commentary this week, a Tumblr devoted to what would be happening for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles if their lives had gone on in real time from the height of their popularity and they were now 30-something adult turtles with homes and wives and jobs. The illustrations, below, are done by New York City comedian Matt Mayer, and they’re quite hilarious. See how many relate to your personal (mutant ninja) 30-something existence:

  • Gluten-free 1 of 7
