**********SPOILER**********

When I heard the lyric "I'll call the White House, have a chat!" from Raffi's "Bananaphone," I thought "well, that might not be the best idea if the President is busy, and he doesn't want kids calling him all the time to chat " Of course, "calling" him on a banana wouldn't do any harm, and actually calling him would be too hard for even the smartest kid to figure out how to do, so yeah.

Congrats to all who participated, especially Balin and Kaylee, as always. (It seems that you two always reply the most to my puzzles.) Now there's a rulebreaker a bit up the page that's still active
