Good news: Beavis & Butthead has finally caught on in England. We know this has happened because in a Championship match between Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United Leeds midfielder Connor Shaughnessy gave away a penalty when he demonstrated his Beavis & Butthead fandom by turning Bolton's Gary Madine into The Great Cornholio.

Did Madine at least manage one "I am Cornholio!" before the play was blown dead? Gosh, I sure hope so.
It's nice that Leeds managed to win 3-2 even though they gave away a goal for the sake of making an A+ pop culture reference. A joke is nothing without commitment, and it's nice to see some appreciation for Mike Judge's early work.
