While watching CBeebies today (is there another channel?) daughter was intrigued by a programme with a sabre tooth tiger.
She said, "Mummy, will you take me to see a sabre tooth tiger?"
Me: Well, I can't can I, because like they said, there are none left?
Her: None at all?
Me: No, we'd have to go to a museum
Her: Did they stink?
Me: I don't know if they smelled.
Her: No, not smell, stink!
Me: What do you mean?
Her: Before I was born, did they stink?
Me: Yes, they were extinct!
