Not a Fan of the "Nicey Nice"

Max brought home a flyer for the Boys Scouts yesterday. He had it in his jacket pocket which I thought was odd compared to being in his folder like all other things that come from school, so I figured perhaps it was something he was interested in.
I never signed him up for the scouts because they were so dad-emphasized and I didn't know how that would work with scheduling and all plus he never really showed any interest after he found out about their activities. But, when I saw the paper, I figured maybe it was a good way to meet new kids in the hood.

Me: So, do you want to join Boy Scouts this year? Sign ups are tomorrow night.
Max: Do you think I should?
Me: I think it could be fun and maybe you will make new friends.
Max: I was thinking that, but they are way too much nicey nice.
Me: What?
Max: Nicey Nice, you know singing and stuff...Nicey Nice.
Me: They do other things besides singing.
Max: Yep, and it is mostly Nicey Nice, I'm not a fan of the Nicey Nice.
Me: It's not like I asked you to join the church choir.
Max: Oh, don't even think about that, I'm not a fan of the churchy church either.

If I hadn't been laughing so hard, I would've tried to make a better case for the scouts, but he knows what he's a fan of and apparently it isn't scouts or the chuch choir. I have added "I'm not a fan" onto the list of things I need to stop saying, right under "Oh Crap!".
