Quiz

Ewbirth-oscar

Elmo asks questions about what can have birthdays and what can't. Birthday cakes can't, but you can eat a birthday cake at a birthday party. Telephones can't, but you can call to wish someone a happy birthday. Ponies can have birthdays; since they can't eat cake, they can eat a birthday apple. Trash cans can't have birthdays, but Oscar the Grouch can have a birthday in his trash can.
