A Surefire Way to Give Your Kid OCD?

One of Elliot's little friends has a Silly Sam broom-and-dustpan set that talks.

As you sweep, Silly Sam repeatedly says, "Sweeping, sweeping" and "You missed a spot."

This goes on...forever.

You wonder about the rise of obsessive-compulsive disorder in our society. It can't help to have a googly-eyed broom relentlessly drive you to maniacal levels of cleanliness. "You missed a spot, you missed a spot." ARE YOU NEVER SATISFIED, SILLY SAM??

Tonight as I was giving Elliot his bath, he grabbed a sponge and began trying to clean the grout from the tiles. Is this how it begins?
