2. Where are you getting your crayons? From North Korea?

Crayons are not poisonous.

From Crayola:

We have ensured that our products are safe since 1903, when we first began offering crayons. All Crayola and Silly Putty products have been evaluated by an independent toxicologist and found to contain no known toxic substances in sufficient quantities to be harmful to the human body, even if ingested or inhaled.

And from the Illinois Poison Control center:

Toxicity Level: Minimally toxic
Toxicity: Crayons are only expected to cause a mild laxative effect if ingested.

Pick another analogy, please.
