Knowing absolutely nothing about this guy, I just don't get it. It sounds like he's joking about how easy society has it today, despite the pandemic. At least that's my takeaway -- that young people today will only do something if it directly benefits them?

I mean, there's an angle there, it's just a weak joke and a really tired intergenerational "back in my day" premise.

Pretty sure that's not it

"Referring to his initial tweet he wrote: "This one has them all thinking they're heroes because they are taking a vaccine they don't need from a Tory Morlock of a PM they are tacitly supporting. "

Holy crap....so he could have just left it as an unfunny, vague joke, but he doubled down on anti-vax political stuff.

We all need to get on-board with vaccination,
and should encourage that sense of acting for the "collective good"
that folks had back in the WWII era.

It's a good opportunity to 'walk the talk'
and do something good for 'everybody' (not just yourself)

Maybe he's making a point about who's against vaccines and masks, you know, Nazis and Qanon.

My guess.

He's right in that case, it's not exactly the same, but he's right. fark Nazis.

Yeah, a really confusing tweet at first.  Comparing youths of 1944 doing their civic duty to youths of 2021 doing their civic duty, so how is that a bad thing?  It's only a bad thing to antivax morons.

Yeah, same. I don't get it. Kids today are soft I guess? Though I think if their great grandparents heard about this they'd be relieved. My descendants don't have to fight anybody and scientists have cured all the worst infectious diseases? Mission accomplished I guess.

"waded in" is perfectly cromulent.  As in, "He waded into the conversation" to mean he joined in the thick of the conversation.  "Weighed in" is more specifically about giving an opinion on a specific topic.

Doesn't do it for me.  Guess I don't get his banter.

The uncle I'm named after stepped out of his crashed  Lancaster bomber along with one of survivor and was soon back in the skies in a newer, less shot up Lancaster, only to disappear over the channel.  He had traveled from the other side of the earth just to get to old Blighty.

If the Young Brits are going to Germany in the summer to the beaches, I've swum in the North Sea.  It's frickin' cold even in Summer.  Not as cold as a Swiss, glacier fed lake, but still cold.  Of course Germans look down on people who take warm showers.

Nah.  He probably needs to cross the pond and work for GOP election propaganda.

Hurst is no stranger to controversy. The 6ft 2in comedian was suspended by Twitter in March after making an "offensive" remark about 18-year-old activist Greta Thunberg.

How, exactly, is his height relevant? If he was Tom Cruise-sized, would his Greta remark be somehow less creepy?
