Agreed! In fact, our team at Stony Brook just completed a study on the
huggability of current PTs. One of our results is that the Scramblesuit
bumblebee fared worst. It caused some of our study participants to report
us to the IRB. We in turn chose to blame David for encouraging this study.

Next, we went on to study possible replacements and found that the
Scramblesuit rabbit [1] did significantly better! As a side benefit, it
made all the censors go awwww and let it right through.

Expect our full results at USENIX Security.
