It's so sensitive, baby skin isn't scratched or cut by shopping carts. I just watched a kid do that the other day. Couldn't have been more than 2... mom put her into the cart and it had a rough edge. Poor thing had a 2 inch cut on her inner thigh.

The solution would have to be a noun, to be synonymous with "humor" in the clue. "Dark" is typically an adjective, and the noun "dark" would not really make sense.

I have a strong feeling if you don't email the answer within 5 seconds you should just give up

Black humor is a noun. Dark is an adjective. Traditionally, crossword clues that are straight definitions are the same part of speech. It's kind of like a hidden clue. Apparently, if this "rule" is broken, crossworders (crosswordies?) go ape crap.

Wow, I had no idea. Thanks for the explanation, that might help for future clues! Maybe I'll be able to get a BOC now, since it's been over a year!

To explain the "bile" one further, since I had to think about it for a minute. The "humor" has nothing to do with funny.

Not sure about this one, though.
