Just in case you needed proof that we’re raising a generation of pussies, here’s Spike Jonze modeling a Where the Wild Things Are mask for a child, who refuses to come inside until he takes it off.  I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the kid’s scared of my favorite book as a kid.  After all, this is a generation raised on abstinent rockstars, abstinent vampires*, and basketball teams who don’t actually play basketball but sing super-gay songs about it.  If some old man tried to pull this crap on me when I was a kid, I would’ve kicked him in the nuts and rocked out to Slayer.

*They’re vampires, dammit! Sex-crazed minions of Satan!
