The Arsenal player, who is embarrassingly small for his age, has also covered himself in tattoos in order to appease his moronic peer group.
A source close to midget Wilshere confirmed he has severe hangups over his diminutive genes.
“Jack has always had a chip on his shoulder about his baby faced appearance. Seedy Russian impresarios are constantly trying to get him to join the circus.
“He told his friends recently that he was going to try smoking to appear cool and older. He has already got lots of ridiculous tattoos because he likes to follow the crowd. The guy’s a laughing stock.”
There have been rumours that Wilshere drives with a booster seat in a car remodelled to look like a fire engine.
However, a spokesperson for Arsenal revealed that the player’s antics can be put down to a severe lack of maturity and intellect.
“Jack is like many of the stupid young lads that play football, except he much, much smaller. He wants to appear cool and thinks that getting lots of tattoos and smoking is the way to do that.
“Nobody really knows what it’s like to be a professional footballer, constantly on the look out for welfare officers, who are intent on dragging you back to the school which never fully accepted you because of your abnormal height.”
