My first thought was that if kids had claws, as a species we'd have died off long ago. Then I realized that we'd probably have claws too, but nice adult claws, and could properly chastise the kids when necessary. (Obviously cats have had to deal with this forever, and they're still around,)
I've never heard of Caillou (as with most kid's shows everywhere, since my cats don't insist on watching TV). Is there something subversive going on there?
I don't really have external limitations on the number of WordTwist games I play (aside from occasional cat demands for various things). That may be good or bad. I can play all day if I want.
