theatremouse August 8, 2014 Share August 8, 2014 (edited) Here is my thinking on this: they present the child in such a manner as to be comical. However, it can only actually be comical if it were so exaggerated as to be conspicuously absurd; ie implausible. But! because oh-so-many children have reached new levels of obnoxiousness in real life, rather than presenting as "so absurd it's funny"; it's just annoying, because it stays within the realm of possibility. Hell, we see children like this on youtube every day. So, it's not funny, it's just a reminder of all the obnoxious staged precocious child videos on the interwebs.
