Angry Young Man

I’m not sure what the advertisers for this shirt by Kingsley were thinking.

Apparently it was that there are way too many happy, smiling child models, so why not buck the trend?

You know, because moms don’t get to see enough pouting, angry kids at home.  Let’s make her look at them while shopping, too!

This expression is exactly the same one I get every night when I tell my son to pick up his toys.

Does it make me want to purchase the shirt? Nah.

Does it make me want to put this child on the naughty rug to straighten out his bad attitude? Yup.

    Somehow it mostly makes me want to back away until Frodo decides I’m not after the One Ring anymore.

    Make the angry Hobbit stop looking at me!!!

    He DOES look like Angry Frodo the Punk Rocker, doesn’t he?

    I think the photog probably just said “Work it for me!” and the kid is saying to himself “What the hell does that mean? Stupid grownups!”

    Sheesh! And I thought angst was a teenager thing!

    It got your attention, didn’t it? Hell, I can barely keep my eyes off of the disturbing thing.

    Your appeal to protecting the poor, weak mommies seems pretty silly, though. I don’t know about your mother, but mine could deal with any silly, ill-considered display of childish rage quite handily, even in the flesh. Somehow, I don’t think a poster would have cowed her much. She would have done a double take, remarked that someone had taken a mighty unpleasant picture, and gotten on with her life.
