Less Negative Vibes, Moriarty!!

For goodness sake - give the kid and his Dad a break.

A young boy of his age doing something for charity???..........good on him.

Does it matter what he wears??

Well done, young man - and thank you.

Do none of you have a sense of humor? Title is just fine as is the content.

MPN gets it.

Nut loose has got a nut loose. Probably trying to be funny but failing miserably. Maybe a walt comedian?
Good luck to the lad, hope he goes far and gets to wear the rank for real on his way to the top!

Blimey, I thought you would see the funny side, it’s called humour, that little lad puts many to shame and it’s not the first time either. I thought you would appreciate the negativity of the title turning out to be something wonderful for a change.

not really. Sometimes it is better to say things as they are and not try and make some pathetic joke. Just trying a little too hard.

good luck to the young lad

Nothing To Do With Humour

Sorry - but the original title is wrong IMHO.

Nothing to do with misplaced humour.

This young man is doing something many of his age are not - he deserves full support and does not need subtle comments which he might - and I certainly - do not understand.

Go for it, young man, and ignore any negative waves!!

Obviously aircrew - if he was a controller he’d have a pint at every pub along the route......

Let's Get Positive

Can we forget the subtle - or not subtle - comments........

Let's all get behind this young man and applaud what he is doing.

At his age, he needs us all to thank him for his efforts, without any confusing comments.

Nutty, I saw the joke. Good on the lad!

(Perhaps some were so disappointed by not being able to be angry, so the anger still has “shone” through ).
