What makes them idiots? This doesn't harm the kid in any way. If fact, he says himself that he's enjoyed the experience. It gave the family some extra money that they no doubt need being that the father is in real estate. And the cherry on top is that it put a smile on the faces of millions of people around the world. Yeah, that's just terrible. What awful people they are.

I think its cute and harmless- you should lighten up. The kid seems well cared for, and even he has had a good laugh about it.

Dear David,
I'm sorry you have such juvenile and ignorant parents. I'm sorry they thought it necessary to splash your face all over a world wide internet site. I'm sorry so many, good and bad, now know where you go to school. I'm really sorry that it wasn't understood by your parents that once you put something on Facebook...it can go anywhere. Good luck David....I hope you are always safe and sound. You seem like a good little guy. I hope your parents wise up.

My friend sent me this video on my myspace profile. I thought it was really funny. Kids are just so darn cute. I don't think what the parents did was wrong. A lot of people have enjoyed this video, I too. The child is ok and not harmed. It's no different than America's funniest home videos. My daughter right before she had her tonsils taken out, was very funny, and I wished I had videotaped it. This is something the parents and the child can laugh about for a very long time.

I thought the video was stupid and not funny. All kids are cute and I've seen them do some cute and funny things. But this one wasn't cute or funny to me. I'm surprised it got so much attention. But good for them I guess.

As a parent, watcihng David made me feel bad for him, if one of my kids had a reaction like that, I would be back at the DDS or in the emergency room in a hearbeat, clearly it wasn't a normal reaction. How much did they use on the boy? Did they toss him into the car immediately after his procedure? I don't think it's a funny thing to laugh at someone who is under the influence of anything, but that's just me, I know a lot of people think being drunk and on drugs is funny too.
I also think it's kind of weird to have a blog about the video...what are they going to do next to poor David just so people will log on and write: "Hahah, that was so funny!"...how much attention do people need these days? Crazy. Well maybe when David is a teen he can entertain everyone by getting wasted and documenting that too. Bleh.

Dear David,
Be happy you don't have Huntress as a parent. Enjoy the limelight.

I don't think this is wrong, I just don't understand America's fascination with boring videos like this. Maybe you have to be a parent.

I don't find this funny in any means of the word. The father said that we are going thru some tough times and everyone needed a good laugh...hey, jerk, AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR SON ??? What kind of father are you ? I'm a nurse and from what I'm seeing, I wonder if he is having a reaction to the medicine...instead of laughing at him, you might have wanted to check with the doctor about your son's behavior. It amazes me that we have to get a license to fish and drive, but people like you are allowed to procreate. This kid will probably grow up and be one of those kids that get angry (which when he screamed he appeared to not be "enjoying" what you were doing but couldn't get you to understand) and pulls a gun killing someone because they laughed at him. Think about what you are doing to your child please...

The mashup with Christian Bales rant from last year is by far the funniest version. This kid is a trip. I'm sure there are people who will say its horrible to post something like that. But I think those people need to lighten up.

How do you know he didn't talk to the dr. about his reaction? The dr. probably informed him of the side affects and monitored him immediately after the procedure to give him the all clear. I can't understand why everyone thinks it's so terrible.

geesh people lighten up...like someone else said it's just like America's Funniest Home Videos only now we have the internet to view it on...too bad the guy didn't send it in, could have won $100K.

Give me a break lady. I bet you are a nurse. Probably not though. Probably one of those people who went to school for like 10 months or so and became a professional bath giver. And now you are on your high horse because of something you read in a text book. Listen, if this kid was being badly treated he probably would have gone without whatever surgery he had. And if you even have kids, haven't you ever taken a funny picture of them or told a friend a funny thing they said? Same thing. Only difference is a lot of people thought this was funny and it got a lot of attention. He didn't damage his kid at all. The kid probably loves the attention. And come on, he lives in Lake County its time that place got attention for something somewhat positive instead of missing kids and crazy red-necks.

It is definitely wrong for the dad to use his son to get a laugh. I don't think the dad really thought it out before posting this on the internet.
Yes, there are a lot of cute videos of kids; but this kid was still being affected by the anesthesia. He was not really aware of what he was doing.
Of course the boys thinks it's funny, he's a kid who doesn't really understand that a parent should not be thinking it's a good idea to violate his privacy. Why would anyone want to put their child on display in this situation.
