I saw this too, it bothered me quite a lot. Parents always seem to wonder where children learned to swear so much, who would ever think Webkinz would be one of those places???. I am a kid but I'm old enough that I know what that means and I don't really think it should be in songs targeted for young children. Well, also corny jokes in general really annoy me..
I was very surprised when I heard that word used in the song. My kids love to sing the POTM songs and I'm sure lots of others do also. Most kids will not know when it is appropriate to use that word and may use it without realizing they are offending someone. I hope Ganz will decide to stick with kid appropriate humor in the future.
I do think that it's not very good for little children to hear the joke, but it doesn't even make any sense. My older sister pointed out that the joke would make more sense if a beaver ran into a log, but it was just a fish...
I understand the joke, but like a lot of people said, littler kids might not understand. They might go around telling their friends this joke and probably get in trouble if an adult hears them say the punch line. Then Ganz will be blamed for this.

I was so surprised when I listened to that song for the first time. I wasn't paying much attention, just multi-tasking as usual, but that joke caught my ear straight away. I was... well... to say the least, absolutely shocked at Ganz. Although I am an older user, Webkinz World is geared towards young players as well, and that joke seemed just a bit too mature for young children. I think that the joke was unnecessary; it could so easily have been replaced with a fun and silly knock-knock joke that players of all ages would understand and appreciate. Thank you so much for voicing your opinion and creating this thread - hopefully Ganz will listen.
My kids have always loved the POTM videos, and usually watch them over and over. Normally I don't mind, since they are so cute. It's not so funny when you have a young DS that knows when something will get a reaction out of an adult, so he repeats it. I know that word has 2 meanings, but I don't think it's appropriate for Ganz's target age group!!!!
Thanks for that Ganz.
BTW thanks for starting this thread, I don't know if they'll listen, but they should, I am the one paying for all these Webbies for our family.
In the newest POTM song, "I Like to Clown Around," when the clownfish goes on stage to tell jokes the third time, the first joke he says is: "What did the fish say when he swam into a log? Dam!" I really think Ganz needs to cut that joke out or replace it with a new one because, come on, younger children are watching these videos! They might not understand what that means, but still, I don't think parents would like it. I told my mom about it, and even though I'm no longer a little kid, she still said she didn't like that.
So who agrees with me (if you understand the joke) that Ganz should change that part in the song? I mean, don't get me wrong, it was a good song and video. Just that one part I think needs to be changed. . .
I never caught that! Being a teen, I understand the joke both ways, and even though I understand it, little kids won't. Ganz should fix that joke.
