The kid was clearly annoyed, probably because he has heard jokes about
his last name before. I'm not sure this is the same kind of
'sexualizing children' that the model did to this kid (also a much
reused joke common to society). Patton Oswald's joke is aimed at the
name/word, not the kid...but still in bad taste (which is what lots of
comedy is all about).
