"Luc: A little disturbing cause it’s aimed at children, but I can’t be the
only one seeing things."

"Disturbing"?! Isn't that attitude a little prissy and puritanical, if not
downright Chrishtan? How many children young enough to be interested in
this _BD_ are going to be so sophisticated as to be able to pull a rabbit
<har! har!> out of a cartoon? OTOH, if the little French kiddies are
sufficiently sophisticated, what further "harm" can that cover possibly do

FWIW, I find the jocular - hopefully - use of "cause" for "because" more
disturbing. :-(

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
