Now, with the way social media works in the modern world, risky photos are often punished with brutal force. Well, Manchester United legend Gary Neville did not take this theory on board and posted a picture of him and Shrek on a trip to Disney.
Sure enough, hordes of trolls stormed in and instantly made the same joke relating to current United star, Wayne Rooney, as reported by The Sun.
There has been a long-running comparison between Shrek and United's record goalscorer and predictably, many just could not resist the bait from Neville.
It was always going to happen wasn't it and Neville should know better. However, given his reputation on social media, he may have done it on purpose.
Rooney has played a bit-part role at United this season under the leadership of Jose Mourinho and the 31-year-old looks set to move on in the summer.
Whether he will remain in England is another matter with rumoured interest from the MLS and Chinese Super League.
