“My parents told me I could be anyone I wanted to be. Turns out, this is called ‘Identity Theft‘“

Parents often tell their children that they can become anyone they want to be. This is not meant to be taken literally. “As a young child my mum told me I could be anybody I wanted to be. Turns out the police call it identity theft” is a jocular saying that was posted on Twitter on August 9, 2010.

The joke has been printed on several images.
