Because he's a six-foot invisible rabbit, and would either slip past security or burrow underneath. (I've stopped following the news, it can't be trusted.)

What is the evolutionary advantage of being ticklish?

It's a way for politicians to scare little children.

You learn something new every day! I didn't know there were different types of tickling.

I think I was referring to gargalesis.

Knismesis is easy to understand. Now I know that when I tickle the roof of my mouth it's knismesis, not gargalesis. There's never a dull moment in the Wilmott household!
