Why Negative Vibe Merchant?

It’s from a line in The Young Ones, one of my favorite television shows.

“I’m wearing this dress, right, because some really selfish negative vibe merchant has boarded up my bedroom. So like I couldn’t get any of my own clothes, right, which I like really needed because I was, like, nude, so I went into Ric’s bedroom, right, and all I could find there clothes-wise, right, was this dress!”

Neil Pye is a true working class hero, even though Ric thinks he’s a fascist. Makes me laugh every time. Not an easy thing to do.
