This teen just got his wisdom teeth out, and from the first frame it’s apparent that he’s not completely with it. He thinks his mom is his sister and has no idea why his eyes and nose are “leaking.”

But, like DeVore, he has philosophical moments as well. He wonders aloud who made the ocean and expresses genuine amazement when he rediscovers clouds.

It’s a simpler outlook on life until he passes out at home—and makes us glad smartphones weren’t a thing when we got our wisdom teeth out.
