Chiquita Miranda?

So I'm singing the Chiquita Banana jingle to my boys yesterday, because I like to enrich their cultural boundaries (i.e. annoy them) like that, and I was explaining the context about how Mis Chiquita was a parody of Carmen Miranda and her fruit-covered turban, etc. Then Wolfie says to me, "Back then, Chiquita Banana might have been a parody. Now it's identity theft!"

He got a big laugh and continued, "The phrase 'You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a person named John'"(which we taught him last week) "used to be a figure of speech. Now it's animal cruelty and aggravated assault!" LOL

Good thing he wants to be an architect and not a lawyer. LOL
