default, hand

Obviously not smarter than a 5th grader.

Alright. There's obviously something we're not seeing.

There's a puzzle in a Russian kids book for 5th graders, and you have to find the defining characteristic for each group of objects. The first one had metal, the other had ovals, the third had furniture... but we just can't get the last one.

A whale, a penguin, a boot, a piano, and a train.

Any ideas?

It's bugging us. We think that we're thinking too complicated, and not simple enough, like a 5th grader would.

Why we're doing 5th grade Russian puzzles is beyond me.
