It's not *impossible* to keep children more-or-less in the dark, up to a
point they don't actually give a crap, for one thing.

A family friend of ours once taught at the nursery school where David
Beckham's kids went.

One of the kids, while out with his family, saw a cardboard cut-out of
David outside a sports shop, and said: "Why is there a statue of
Brooklyn's dad?"
